Jillian Sullivan is an acclaimed New Zealand writer and essayist. Her latest book is ‘Map For The Heart‘. In an article published on the first day of the new year, she states her desire for New Zealand to go plant-based.
Excerpt, (referring to Rachel Carlson’s ‘The Silent Spring’):-
‘She was talking about the chemical highway of toxic pesticides, fungicides and herbicides, and the lesser-known road of alternative, biological systems. But she could have been talking about us today, with our highway of intensive industrialised agriculture, our heating, chaotic planet, and the hope that is offered by visionary practitioners and scientists. My wish for New Zealand? That we have the courage to take that other road to transform our industrial agricultural systems into plant-based and organic’.
