Cultivating Place: Earth Day Special: We Are The ARK with Ireland's Mary Reynolds
It is now Mid-April, and this week we are celebrating both California Native Plant Week AND the week of Earth Day. Wildflowers are blooming and being admired across the country!
In honor of Earth Day 2023 and all of the fierce and tender hopes we have for it, we are back in conversation with Ireland’s Mary Reynolds, self-described as an ex-garden designer, actively reimagining and rebuilding a relationship with nature through her most recent founding of a movement known as We Are the Ark in which we transform our gardens and gardening into Acts of restorative Kindness welcoming and supporting all manner of life.
Some of you may remember that my previous conversation with Mary in 2019 after her last book, The Garden Awakening, was published, and just as she was founding We Are the Ark. Mary’s dedication and persistence around the importance of each of us in stewarding the land we can is a bright spot in our world. Enjoy!
Cultivating Place now has a donate button! We thank you so much for listening over the years and we hope you'll support Cultivating Place.
We can't thank you enough for making it possible for this young program to grow even more of these types of conversations.
