Placing seeds in the ground with the hope that the tiny life within will burst forth is an activity that goes back long before human history. Every generation has marveled at earthʼs renewal in Natureʼs endless creative display. Plants provide our food, our clothing, much of the materials that make up our homes, and of course, life itself.
There is nothing more essential to the life-systems of this planet. Plants oxygenate the atmosphere and reduce atmospheric pollutants. Replanting forests in both developed and developing countries is a primary strategy for mitigating the effects of man-made greenhouse gas emissions. Just plant. It really is that simple.
