The Preserve Journal is an independent print magazine dedicated to the exploration of a more sustainable, responsible, and resilient food culture.
With it we wish to invite our readers to look beyond the bite of food on their fork, and to see the whole picture of their meal and their role in it.
The Preserve Journal presents you with a broad range of perspectives from an ever-growing group of global authors and contributors- each of them with a wealth of knowledge, rich experiences and insights to share.
The content for each issue is being collected throughout the year and often follows the change of the seasons. However, while the seasons provide a visual frame for each issue we share content that remains relevant and important across the seasons and years. By doing so we hope to invite our readers to revisit past issues and find continuous inspiration.
Join us in an unfolding dialogue of what a sustainable, transparent and resilient food culture might look, feel and taste like.
