Our gardens and parks reflect our relationships with nature. Are they places humming with life or a silent expanse of a few dominant species? 

Imagine gardens where humans play a role not as a dominating force, nor as passive observers, but as a key part of nature. Planting habitat for pollinators, birds and wildlife is a part of healing our relationships with nature.

We need to shift away from a detached, exploitive relationship with nature toward one that is close, protective, and regenerative.  -Dr. Suzanne Simard, author of Finding the Mother Tree

A Partnership Approach

At the moment, do you feel like a part of nature, or apart? There are many ecological connections between humans and nature to learn about, but knowing we are a part of nature is different from feeling that connection. Reading Nature strives to connect both knowing and feeling, head and heart, science and art for a balanced approach to nature.
