"We make an immense mistake when we think of trees as solely an aesthetic member of a community. They cut pollution, they cool the air, they prevent erosion, they muffle sound, they produce oxygen. Then, after all that, they look good." -Dr. Richard Leakey

Opinion | Oliver Sacks: The Healing Power of Gardens

"The role that nature plays in health and healing becomes even more critical for people working long days in windowless offices, for those living in city neighborhoods without access to green spaces, for children in city schools or for those in institutional settings such as nursing homes. The effects of nature’s qualities on health are not only spiritual and emotional but physical and neurological." ~Oliver Sacks

Even for people who are deeply disabled neurologically, nature can be more powerful than any medication.

Native plants can help turn your yard into a nature preserve

With Spring just a day away, you may be thinking of your garden. Consider the environmental benefits of native plants as you plan. 🐦🦋🐝🌻

Why fight the deer and other creatures trying to eat your yard's foliage? Welcome them, or butterflies, birds and bunnies, with native plants.

Hello, sun in my face.
Hello, you who made the morning
and spread it over the fields
and into the faces of the tulips
and the nodding morning glories,
and into the windows of, even, the
miserable and the crotchety –
best preacher that ever was,
dear star, that just happens
to be where you are in the universe
to keep us from ever-darkness,
to ease us with warm touching,
to hold us in the great hands of light –
good morning, good morning, good morning.

Watch, now, how I start the day
in happiness, in kindness. ☀️

The Secret to Good Health May Be a Walk in the Park

It's so important that we preserve our public parks. Check out this article from The New York Times.

In Minneapolis-St. Paul, the nation’s healthiest urban region, almost everyone lives within a 10-minute walk of a good public park. Shouldn’t we all?
