|View of the whole planet changed our perspective and we started Earth Day. It was MUCH needed at that time.|
It’s also our responsibility to work individually and within our community and local organizations toward a more sustainable future. To help you get started on your individual and local community efforts, Sue Reed and I have provided hundreds of easy-to-accomplish measures in our new book, “Climate-Wise Landscaping: Practical Actions for a Sustainable Future.” Our actions were chosen because they help to accomplish one or more of these 3 objectives:
1. Help your landscape survive climate change.
2. Help wildlife survive climate change.
3. Help mitigate climate change.
We are thrilled that Doug Tallamy wrote a compelling foreword for our book. Dr. Tallamy is an outspoken entomology professor at University of Delaware, whose research has shown how important native plants are for insects, which form the basis for for balanced ecosystems. His book, Bringing Nature Home, published by Timber Press in 2009, has provided science-based reasoning for why native plants are so important.
Our Climate-Wise Landscaping book s available now at Amazon and many other locations, but for more information or to buy a signed copy directly from our website go to: www.climatewiselandscaping.com.
Yes, climate change is a huge problem, which needs huge solutions—sooner rather than later. We can wring our hands and do nothing OR we can all do our part in our yards and in our communities. While each of our actions may not seem important, there are many millions of us who want to become better stewards of our planet and our actions taken together will be huge. So let's get to work! Thanks.
