If the last few months have revealed our vulnerabilities, they have also shown us that we are capable of taking action. This issue of BESIDE features profiles of Ontario Chief Matty Matheson and the Grassroots Grandmothers, protectors of the Mi'kmaq water. Moreover, interviews with New York Times reporter Jenna Wortham, host Vanessa Pilon, and fermentation experts David Zilber and Sandor Ellix Katz. It also includes essays by anthropologist Serge Bouchard and poet Marie-Élaine Guay, and more.
Founded in Montreal in 2016, BESIDE is an editorial content development platform that stands at the crossroads of nature and culture. The bi-annual magazine publishes personal essays, stories happening in the field, and ideas that help us find our place in the world.
