Creating biologically inclusive
safe havens in your backyard
-Why It Matters-
Take a moment to consider the food you eat, the food your food eats, the clothes you wear, the materials of the furniture in your house. How much of this either comes directly from or is derived from plants?
How much are we aware of how life as we know it is contingent upon the relationship between plants and insects. Plants and insects go hand in hand. Without plants, there are no insects and without insects, there are no plants. Plants and insects have a “mutualist relationship”—without one, there is not the other. 85% of plants are flowering plants. 95% of flowering plants require a pollinator.
