Here at Ecosystem Gardening we know the value of a garden.

We work to create welcoming habitats for wildlife with native plants. We know that when we all create healthy gardens this helps create healthy ecosystems. And healthy ecosystems create a healthy planet.

We know that native plants support local foodwebs which feed the wildlife and increases biodiversity.

We know that providing opportunities for children to be connected to nature is healthy for them, and teaches them to respect the earth and its creatures. And provides the spark that will produce our next generation of environmentalists, conservationists, and stewards of the earth.

Stewardship is defined as the careful and responsible management of something entrusted to one’s care.

The health of our planet has been entrusted to our care. Do you think we’re practicing careful and responsible management? Maybe not so much, but we can learn to do better.
