"The plants in our yards are just as effective as the bird feeder you put up in wintertime because the plants are making the food that feeds the birds in the summertime"
"For the first time in its history, gardening has taken on a role that transcends the needs of the gardener. Like it or not, gardeners have become important players in the management of our nations wildlife. It is now within the power of individual gardeners to do something that we all dream of doing: to make a difference. In this case, the 'difference' will be to the future of biodiversity, to the native plants and animals of North America and the ecosystems that sustain them"
"We have to get rid of the notion that nature is something you must drive to. You don't need to drive somewhere to connect with nature. You can do that right at home- every time we look our the window or go outside"
These great quotes and ideas, and many, many more, pertaining to the good and necessary role Gardening for Wildlife plays in saving our world can be found in the wonderful book "Bringing Nature Home" by Doug Tallamy (click highlight to be redirected to his website).
