Sounding notes of warning and love, Gaia 2020 is a moving addition to the rich and expanding literature of ecological concern.’

Carol Rumens, Professor of English Literature, Bangor University.

‘An incredibly thought-provoking poem. As a mental health charity, we are aware of the significance that nature plays in helping people feel better and re-take control of their lives after a mental health crisis. We are as much a part of nature, as nature is a part of us.’

Tunbridge Well’s Mayor’s Charity, Mental Health Resource.

For anyone and everyone concerned for the future of the planet
