Description

From the acclaimed author of Garden Awakening, We Are the ARK urgently advocates all home gardeners to bring nature back to their yards and to be an active part of positive environmental change. 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. AUTHOR: Mary Reynolds is a reformed internationally acclaimed landscape designer. The youngest woman in history to win a gold medal for garden design at the Chelsea flower show in 2002, she has since given that all up to be part of the solution to the crisis we are all living through, the climate and biodiversity collapse. She is the bestselling author The Garden Awakening, and a motivational speaker and founder of the global movement We Are The ARK. SELLING POINTS: . We Are the ARK is equal parts advocacy and instruction. Reynolds cogently and passionately explains how gardening can make an impact on the environment and instructs home gardeners on how to do so on their own property . Mary Reynolds is an award-winning garden designer and the author of the groundbreaking book Garden Awakening. Her passionate fans follow her on wearetheark.org. 200 colour illustrations
