While children spend less time outdoors than ever, adults also live in a time of chronic disconnection from nature. How, then, do we rewild childhood?The Nature Seed is a practical and philosophical guide to sharing the wonders of the natural world with children. It's a manual for finding awe in the cracks of the pavement and magic on a walk around the block. It offers a radical vision that calls for a new kinship with nature in both town and countryside with creative ideas and activities to nurture your child's love for the wild drawn from extensive experience. For parents and adults with children in their lives, the Nature Seed is an inspiring cry for wild play, peace and adventure for all.

Praise for Losing Eden by Lucy Jones:Urgent, accessible, moving ... A beautifully written, research-heavy study about how nature offers us wellbeing
The benefits of experiencing nature may be far greater than is commonly appreciated ... A fascinating exploration of the new science of our connection to the natural world ... written in such lush, vivid prose that reading it, one can feel transported and restored.
Wonderful...This is an important book and one I'll refer back to.
Beautifully written, movingly told and meticulously researched, Losing Eden is an elegy to the healing power of nature, something we need more than ever in our anxiety-ridden world of ecological loss. Woven together with her own personal story of recovery, Lucy Jones lays out the overwhelming scientific evidence for nature as nurturer for body and soul with the clarity and candour that will move hearts and minds - a convincing plea for a wilder, richer world
Praise for Foxes Unearthed by Lucy Jones:Jones's history of our complex relationship with the fox is revealing... to discover there was an 18th-century sport of 'fox tossing' almost makes this worth the purchase alone
Engaging and hugely enjoyable
Brave, bold and honest - finally the truth about foxes
A sensitive and illuminating investigation . . . a beautiful book that will change the way you think about the fox
