Earth Moves – a Wirral based community project focused on wellbeing and ecology – has launched Earth Voices, a new online magazine dedicated to wellbeing, arts, and ecology.
Earth Voices is written and produced by local people from Merseyside and contains a wide variety of articles. It can be downloaded on Earth Moves website – www.earthmoves.org/earth-voices.
In its opening issue Earth Voices is particularly focused on how to sustain mental health during lockdown and the ramifications of Covid-19 on our lives. The online magazine also contains articles on the benefits of dance, book reviews on ecological and wellbeing focused publications, poetry, a ‘herb of the month’ (this month: mugwort), and recipes. It is filled with resources for people looking to engage in gardening and growing.
Paula Ishtar, Earth Moves founder said: “At Earth Moves, we tackle different issues such as social isolation, healthy eating, and ecological sustainability. We started Earth Voices magazine as a way to reach a wider audience and communicate some of the things we have been doing here at Earth Moves. We are always looking for new contributions, so please get in touch if you have an idea, poem or article that we could feature in our next edition.”
Earth Moves is a co-operative offering educational and transformational experiences and events. It runs out of a Community Greenhouse in Wallasey and provides training and education on wellbeing and ecology through the Wirral Adult Education and Lifelong learning and Lottery funding.
During the lockdown Earth Moves activities have moved online, with Zoom dance classes, mediation sessions, child psychology courses and even a permaculture workshop. Follow Earth Moves on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram to keep up to date.
Earth Voices will be published online quarterly, and welcomes articles from
interested people in the community. The next edition will focus on diversity and community cohesion, please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have an idea, article, poem or piece of artwork that could be included in the magazine.
