CLIMATE WISE LANDSCAPING: PRACTICAL ACTIONS FOR A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE, Sue Reed and Ginny Stibolt
What can we do, right now, in our own landscapes, to help solve climate change?
Predictions about future effects of climate change range from mild to dire – but we’re already seeing warmer winters, hotter summers, and more extreme storms. Proposed solutions often seem expensive and complex, and can leave us as individuals at a loss, wondering what, if anything, can be done.
Sue Reed and Ginny Stibolt offer a rallying cry in response – instead of wringing our hands, let’s roll up our sleeves. Based on decades of experience, this book is packed with simple, practical steps anyone can take to beautify any landscape or garden, while helping protect the planet and the species that call it home.
