Beside is an independent magazine at the crossroads of nature and culture featuring personal essays, stories from the field, and ideas—new and old—for better ways to live in the world.
In this issue: Living in harmony with the seasons. Encouraging the locally made and locally grown. Embracing a more minimalist lifestyle. Learning to read the nature that surrounds us, in the city as well as the forest. Many of our aspirations are linked to our desire to reconnect to the land. Could nordicity help us embrace this way of life? In the face of current crises, could it infuse our daily lives with precious tools: slowness, presence, and a sense of community?
