Botanist, medical biochemist, author and activist DIANA BERESFORD-KROEGER possesses a unique combination of western scientific training and traditional knowledge and methods with which she works to bring a better understanding and appreciation of the scientific complexities of nature to the general public.  Her concept of bioplanning challenges ordinary people to develop a new relationship with nature, to view the environment as a biological system and to perform the ecological task of replanting the global forest.

 

Her books include The Sweetness of a Simple Life, The Global Forest, Arboretum Borealis: A Lifeline of the Planet, Arboretum America, and A Garden for Life.  Beresford-Kroeger was inducted as a Wings Worldquest fellow in 2010, she was elected as a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society in 2011, and in 2016 the Society named her one of 25 women explorers of Canada.

 

A feature documentary about her work, Call of the Forest: The Forgotten Wisdom of Trees, appeared in 2017.

Annie Proulx said, “CALL OF THE FOREST is a film of rare significance. It draws the viewer into the green world that sustains life on this planet at a crucial ecological point, and is an introduction to the work of Diana Beresford-Kroeger, one of the least known but most important people on the planet.”
