Episode 9: Gardener to Guardian
Amid collapsing biodiversity worldwide, Mary Reynolds of Ireland is building a movement to turn gardeners into guardians of the planet by returning our own patch of land to nature, and by restoring hope that individual action can create lasting change.
As agricultural practices consume more land, and contribute to habitat losses globally, Mary stresses the importance of taking action on an individual basis. Nowhere is that easier to do than with your own land, by creating an ARK – Acts of Restorative Kindness. Mary reveals how to create one quickly and to let nature reap the rewards, something seen first-hand by former farmers-turned-nature preservationists Anita and Will Wheeler, who now host a plethora of native animals that thrive on their ARK.
