The Importance of Plants

In 2012, World Congress of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), attended by more than 10,000 people representing the governments of 150 nations, as well as more than 1,000 non-governmental organizations, passed a resolution declaring that children have a human right to experience the natural world and a healthy environment.  (signed but still unratified by the United States). (Richard Louv, author, blog.childrenandnature.org/2014/10/27)

 

Quote of the Month: 

“It is a golden maxim to cultivate the garden for the nose, and the eyes will take care of themselves.”
