CREATING YOUR OWN URBAN FOREST
Home gardens, whether indoor or out, provide us with much. They provide esthetic pleasure, food to eat, medicines to heal, a safe haven and improve our physical environment. Throughout the ages and in varied cultures we have learned much about life and our world from plants. They inspire, console and nurture. Gardeners the world over have experienced receiving much more than they invest in their gardens. A garden can be many things. It can be the potted plant on the desk at work, the terrace planters or the yard plantings. The urban forest is all of these. It is anywhere mankind has brought plants into his/her world. It is the recognition that we have much to gain from recognizing an interdependence with our fellow earthlings of the plant kingdom.
Now let us look at how we can build our own forests. Select the type you are interested in for information and interactive consulting. Indoors or out you can create your own urban forest to improve your environment and your well-being.
I think that I shall never seeJoyce Kilmer (1886-1918)Trees
A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
A tree that looks at God all day,
A tree that may in Summer wear
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Poems are made by fools like me,
Archbishop Khoren Nar Bey de Lusignan (d. 1892)
