This collection takes a look at various efforts being implemented by people throughout the world to reclaim the land that they value. Despite facing opposition, these five stories represent the resilient nature of both the physical land and the people that put stock in maintaining it. In a time where we are often told, “it is too late” to reverse negative impacts on the earth, these people are responding with, “but we can still try.” Instead of promoting Band-Aids on injuries, each of these stories exemplify how you can take what may be broken, and not just try to fix it, but make it even stronger going forward through  sustainable solutions.
