Viveka Ljungström: Culture can save nature

Viveka Ljungström: Culture can save nature

CHRONICLE: Think how carelessly the word nature and natural is used. But what is nature? Is a meadow natural? Is pasture nature?

Culture can save nature

Imagine if you were to take and make a meadow in the city.

Much of what we call nature is actually culture, that is, created by man even though it is a long time ago.

A meadow with deciduous trees is one of the world's most species-rich places and a pasture is home to species that only survive if hooves trample the ground. But none of them are nature, they are culture, created by man several thousand years ago. Created, not to be rich in species but to ensure that the tambos have good food, all year round. In the pasture they graze, in the meadow the winter fodder grows. Both pastures and meadows are found in places that are rich in species by nature and have since been changed by humans and thus become even more species-rich.

Now we no longer have any use for pasture and meadow. The animals are fed in a different way. So they are disappearing. And with them many animals and plants. But they do not have to disappear. We can choose to preserve them because we think they are beautiful and because we believe it is good for us that many species are allowed to live on.

Garden is not nature either. It's culture. The word culture just means to cultivate or cultivate. But even though it is not natural, animals and plants thrive there. And by cultivating our garden, we can provide environments where nature's birds, insects and plants enjoy living.

In cultures, fashion goes. And right now, the trend that speaks for a peasant society and self-sufficiency is strong. Let's take care of it. If all homeowners were to turn half their lawn into a meadow and thus stop mowing that part with a motor lawnmower, it would lead to us reducing carbon dioxide emissions by just over 17,000 tonnes per year! In addition, a number of endangered species of plants and animals would find refuge.

At there are descriptions of how to make a meadow.

In the next issue of Allt om Trädgård (out in stores 15 February) there is a great seed special with tips on lots of exciting seeds. There we suggest, among other things, new meadow seed mixtures.

This spring's trend special is finally here. Here is a small taste of stuff I do not want to be without this summer.

Just right and perhaps the hottest this summer is rattan furniture. Happiness is finding an old one at a flea market. If you do not do that, you are Monet from Danish an alternative.

A popular self-help book called The hippopotamus in the living room (Tommy Hellsten, Cordia). Worth reading about how easily it has happened that family tragedies remain unresolved even though the consequence is like living with just one hippopotamus in the room. I collect hippos to remind myself to dare to take on what is difficult. I place Anne Nilsson's in concrete in the garden.

Garden is pleasure. Tighten one hammock between the trees and listen to the bumblebees when the cherry trees are in bloom. This colorful one comes from

The softest wax cloth from Marimekko is Honeysuckle and sold by the meter. I put it on the table both outside and inside.

Lien is superior most motor mowers. In addition, it is, for the trend-conscious, crazy right to have leaned against a wall. Stylish, well made and at the top of the wish list is slåtterlie Lif from

Is it possible to separate nature from culture, is gardening nature or culture? Are all life forms equal when it comes to conserving biodiversity, is the cockroach worth as much as the guckusko? Where is the line between the natural and the unnatural, does cloning plants feel natural but not cloning animals?

In fifteen essays, a group of researchers from a diverse subject field write about their view of nature in an entertaining and thought-provoking way. That the authors deliver more questions than answers is entirely in order. Because by being confronted with their different tracks of thought, you as a reader are inspired to think further about the meaning and essence of nature.

Happiness of nature: our valuable biological diversity

Ola Jennersten takes us to our fascinating and living nature and tells knowledgeable and captivating in words and pictures about which flowers and plants such as bees, bumblebees, butterflies and other insects, the important pollinators, need the most. What we can do at home is both valuable and fun. The reward will be a showy, living nature and gardens with flowers and fruit on trees and shrubs.

On our journey through Sweden, we also get to meet happy Fia, the cow on the meadow with a thousand night violets and to follow exciting game hunting on bears, wolves and wolverines. We also meet some of the unique nature enthusiasts who entertainingly and generously share their joys, best tips and experiences.


For a long time, Hälleskogsbrännan's visitor center will provide an experience of nature after the fire. It has a messy charm that works, says Rasmus Wærn. Photo: Jason Strong.

Ten years ago Dagens Nyheter published a sweeping outcome against the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency's ambition to build nature instead of protecting forests and land. The leader's shortcomings did not prevent him from gaining a devastating influence. Several planned nature reserves were put on ice. We will never know which ideas were crushed in their infancy. Hälleskogsbrännan's visitor center is not a nature these have a much more extensive program. But it shares their ambition, to not only lead visitors out into nature, but also into it. The significance of the fact that this ruin received some built facilities cannot be overestimated. They bring a bit of order to the chaos that the fire left behind. Without landscaped paths, beams, barbecue areas and towers, it would hardly be possible to visit the big fire. Here the trees can collapse without warning.

At the same time, there is an instructive story here that is about both shortcomings and heroic efforts. And if the ability of plants and animals to reclaim, yes in many cases exploit, the lands the fire left behind. A few years from now, these stories will be the reserve's main attraction. The wide views of dead trees are not much more than a dramatic background to the stories that the visitor's exhibition presents. I imagine that the exhibition will be redone as the forest grows. Today, losses are in focus, but soon the new will be at the center. Pine and spruce have already been planted outside the reserve, but in 60 percent of the fire area, nature is up to them. It is one of the largest protected areas in all of southern Sweden, about eight thousand hectares. Since it is above all birch, aspen and willow that have now taken over the old coniferous forest, it is Sweden's largest continuous deciduous forest that is now growing up here.

The tower ends the 300 meter long footbridge up Grävlingsberget. From there, the view is miles wide. Photo: Jason Strong.

Humans are probably one of the animals that have the most difficulty adapting to the new environment. Those who do not have establishment species as a special interest, need a bit of built-in care to be able to absorb the desolate greatness of the fire. The architect Mikael Hassel understood that. He won the assignment to design the facility at Grävlingsberget with a proposal based on his degree project at KTH. Later, he designed the whole thing as an employee at PS architecture. It was a successful debut, which was soon noticed by both the jury for the Siena Prize and by Sveriges Arkitekter in Västmanland.

The merits lie above all in the rhythm of the facility. The long footbridge trickles forward much like you would on a forest hike. The movement returns vertically, with the lookout tower as the highlight of the facility in every sense. The whole thing has a messy charm, which testifies that it is actually a kind of playground as well. Grävlingsberget will attract children. Few places are as safe to grill at and while the fire is burning, children can run around and inevitably reflect on what a single spark can accomplish.

Everything is robust, but important meetings are also designed with finesse. The architecture is related to the Vasa Museum, Månsson and Dahlbäck's award-winning collage of another disaster. Like there, the rustic constructions are spiced with quotes in this case for the area's knotted timber cottages. Some corners have been designed as corner chains, and the saddle roof shape is a recurring theme, but rather as a picture than as a practice. The architecture does not try to position itself in any avant-garde. It is, like the Vasa Museum, rather a reminder of the values ​​of modern tradition.

The design wisely does not refer to the fire itself. This has its monument in all the dead pines, and when they collapse, the facility must continue to be relevant. Few modern buildings are in an equally strong relationship with their environment, whose intensive renewal is at the same time the real spirit of the place. Nature changes and culture is constant, until it has played its role. It only has it when the area is a forest like any other. Until then, the facility will play many different roles.

The twelve meter high tower consists of three volumes that are directed towards different views. Photo: Jason Strong

The lookout tower, which is now a place to take in the extent of the fire, will soon be the only point where you can look over the slush forest that is on its way up. In a couple of generations, there will be a place to go into the treetops. The forest is made accessible, not only by being able to roll through it, but also by giving it a focus. Those who can focus on the details of what plants and animals themselves tell about the environment, do not need these great grips, but the rest of us need some guidance. Dagens Nyheter's writer passed on this pedagogical role at the reserve, but she would not have been able to see the difference that Grävlingsberget makes either.

A reserve like Hälleskogsbrännan was created for three purposes. First, it provided an opportunity to compensate affected forest owners. Secondly, it gives plants and animals an opportunity to reclaim the land with a mixture that a production forest can never provide. Thirdly, there are for visitors and students who want to see and learn about the forest. This third task requires some finesse so as not to become too intrusive. Mikael Hassel's has gnarled and a little grumpy woodwork. Reasonably well-equipped and without unnecessarily complicated shapes, buildings wedge and blast away over logs and stones. If they remain in 100 years, you will be able to marvel at how they weigh for the trees, although in this particular environment it will be the other way around. First culture. Then nature.

"Sutip Austad is the coolest cultivation and cookbook of the year."

The interest in plants has followed Thai Sutip Austad through life from the tough years of growing up as a child slave, in the encounter with Swedish nature and culture, to his own farm on the Swedish west coast. In cultivation, Sutip has found both his livelihood and his personal harmony.

In The Asian Kitchen Garden, she shares her story and cultivation philosophy, and shows you how to grow exciting Asian vegetables and herbs such as ginger, lemongrass, bitter melon, coriander, chili, pak choi and malabar spinach. It is excellent to create a flamboyant Asian kitchen garden also in Sweden. Sutip suggests fun and easy-to-grow plants, some thrive best in greenhouses and others work well in the open air or in pots.

Based on Thai cuisine, your own harvest is prepared in about 30 recipes.

Sutip Austad has for over 20 years grown organically on his farm in Spekeröd outside Stenungsund. Through collaborations with some of Sweden's best chefs, she has established herself as an esteemed grower who always does things on her own.

Henrik Francke, who has written the lyrics, is a freelance writer and writes for magazines and newspapers, and has been the creative director of the magazine Gourmet for a number of years.

Jag дr ful, jag дr sе vidrig."Hon lever hela tiden pе grдnsen, utnyttjar andra och lеter sig utnyttjas.

De oroliga

Linn Ullmann

"Jag numrerar, ordnar och katalogiserar. Jag sдger: Det var tre kдrlekar. Jag дr idag lika gammal som min far var nдr jag fцddes. Fyrtioеtta еr. Min mor var tjugosju, hon sеg bеde mycket дldre och mycket yngre ut дn sin еlder den gеngen."De oroliga дr en lekfull, utforskande och genreцverskridande roman om ett barn som inte kan vдnta med att vдxa upp, och fцrдldrar som skulle fцredra att vara barn. Det дr en bok om minnen, glцmska och de mеnga berдttelser som utgцr ett liv."Trollbindande" (DN), "Ett litterдrt mдstarprov inom den sjдlvbiografiska genren" (Expressen)

Under min tid i Uppsala fick jag upp цgonen fцr Berglins skarpa humor och hдrliga tecknarstil. Serier frеn andra vеningenдr en given julklapp till en vдn som vill skratta!

I Fest pе 30 min slеr Jessica Frej ett slag fцr att bjuda цver fler vдnner oftare, men utan nеgon festfixarstress. Med festliga trerдttersmenyer som gеr att sno ihop pе en halvtimma дr vдl alla hinder undanrцjda? Ge den till nеgon du skulle vilja bli hembjuden till oftare!

Tom Gates fantastiska vдrld - Min 9-еring behцver ta steget till att bцrja lдsa sjдlv hellre дn att grabba tag i PS4-kontrollen, datorn eller paddan. Dе kommer de lдttlдsta men fartfyllda bцckerna om Tom Gates vдl till pass med roliga bilder och tokiga spektakel!

Slutligen bör man även satsa på en säker app för lösenord där all viktig information sparas både på mobilen och i molnet, om olyckan skulle vara framme och man förlorar sin telefon. Att spara både lösenord och bilder i molnet gör den eventuella olyckan betydligt mindre olycklig.


Jag vill personligen även tipsa om att ta med några stödstrumpor. Nej det är inte bara för gamla männsiskor. Faktum är att stödstrumpor är det bästa som finns för ömmande ben under långa flygresor. Ta på strumporna innan ni går på planet och kom fram med fräscha slanka vader till resmålet.

Med dessa tips sparar man både tid och pengar, förutom huvudvärken och tidsförlusten som kan uppstå om man har oturen att packa fel. En smart packning leder till smidigare resor och mer tid att njuta av semestern!

OCH: bonustipset är att ta med er en billig backup mobil. Jag kraschade min Iphone i bildörren det sista på resan. Ni skulle sett mina ögon när jag såg den sorliga synen av min forna mobil haha. Det blev ett jäkla krångel sen med att få tag i nån billig skittel att ha tills jag får tillbaka min telefon via försäkring hemma. Att vara utan mobil på resan är som att sola utan sol…nästan :)
