The loss of biodiversity is rapidly reducing the ability of the earth to maintain clean air and water and to provide food and habitat for all her creatures including us. We must take direct action to alleviate the unjustifiable stress on the individual plants and animals and other life forms we share our planet with. But how do we do it? In We are the ARK, award-winning garden designer Mary Reynolds provides an answer: by restoring nature to our home gardens and public spaces through acts of restorative kindness (ARK). So what is an ARK? It’s a restored, native ecosystem, and a thriving patch of native plants and creatures that have been allowed to re-establish in the earth’s intelligent, successional process of natural restoration. Over time, this land becomes a habitat for pollinators and wild creatures who are in desperate need of support.
In We Are the ARK, Reynolds details exactly how home gardeners can play a role, no matter the size of their space. Readers will be inspired to take part in positive environmental change and equipped to do so at home.
