Book Summary:

Over the past three decades, the garden cultivation of native plants has become a dominant theme of landscape horticulture. It is considered a way to contribute to environmental health, species diversity, and human well-being. Focusing on the Northeast and mid-Atlantic, the dissertation considers the origins of these justifications and the rhetoric of leading advocates in the 1890-1965 period. American enthusiasm for cultivating native plants first developed between 1890 and 1917, when "wild gardens" were fashionable. Such gardens were promoted as a means of improving human physical and psychological health, rejecting ostentatious garden styles, and demonstrating one's national pride, aesthetic sensibility, and frugality. Around 1900, two influential organizations were formed to urge the in situ protection of wild flowers: the Society for the Protection of Native Plants and the Wild Flower Preservation Society of America. Native plants were considered "difficult" to cultivate but this changed when, around 1920, Edgar T. Wherry publicized the effects of soil pH on plant distribution. American gardeners came to believe that native plants would thrive if the soil pH was altered to suit them. Wherry and author Herbert Durand promoted the belief that garden cultivation was an effective means of ex situ preservation. From the early 1920s, when the protection organizations were reorganized, they advocated native plant gardening. Out of broad conservation concerns, a public commitment emerged for establishing permanent, extensive preserves for native plants. Most preserves were managed as natural-style gardens that were open to the public. Following the Second World War, advocates shifted their emphasis to the value of native plant gardens for homes. The development of several public native plant gardens is discussed. Case studies include the Local Flora Section at Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Garden in the Woods, and Bowman's Hill Wildflower Preserve. Primary motives for advocating the cultivation of native plants were to preserve them from extinction, to provide Americans with refuges and nature experiences, and to demonstrate social distinction. Environmental health, a primary motive in recent decades, began to emerge in the 1960s.

Book Summary:

Summer isn't looking good for Alana Alcott, an urban teacher of gifted students. She's been court ordered to teach summer school with Outward Bound instructor Mike Reynolds. Their students? Five unruly foster kids whose stories of abandonment mirror Alana's own childhood more than she wants to admit. Mike, in particular, initially chafes on Alana's nerves. She sees him as an overgrown Boy Scout, promoting a nature-to-nurture philosophy that may or may not help their troubled students. And troubled they certainly are, with problems ranging from behavioral issues to a looming gang recruitment. As Mike and Alana struggle to help their young charges connect with nature in the bleak concrete landscape of the projects, the two teachers find themselves increasingly attracted to each other. The demands of their students, however, interrupt their blossoming romance at every turn. Alana, meanwhile, finds herself forced to confront her own past-and the mother who abandoned her. Over the course of one short summer, seven lives will change, for good or ill. If Mike and Alana can help it, their students will find hope and direction. Doing so, however, may mean putting their own happiness on hold-or sacrificing it forever.

Book Summary:

Still Growing Wildflowers...That's what we're calling this book. Because despite all of the life that happens to us, no matter how many times we get thrown down or pushed aside, we get back up again. We keep growing. And that's just beautiful.♥Think of your healing as a seed; you're pushed into the dirt and everything is dark for a while. Some days you feel like you're literally drowning, then you start to soften up. The soil around you starts to warm, you feel the sun and start to break out of your shell, pushing a little further each day, even when it rains and hurts like hell. You keep growing through the weeds and the wind. And one day, you bloom. Not everyone will notice. Not everyone will care and there will be others who don't even like you. But the thing is, you didn't bloom for them. You bloomed for you. This is the Alchemy of Healing. This is my raw, real, open heart; a compilation of poetry written through the years of healing in hopes of helping others heal too. -----About the Author: Tree hugger. Earth lover. Wild mother. My name is Alisha and I'm a kinda hippie, kinda witchy, sort of spiritual lifestyle blogger at Where She Grows. I've never met a sunflower I didn't like. Sagittarius sun. Aries moon.

Book Summary:

Linda Greenlaw hadn't been blue-water fishing for ten years, since the great events chronicled in The Perfect Storm and The Hungry Ocean, when an old friend offered her the captaincy on his boat, Seahawk, for a season of swordfishing. She took the bait, of course, and thus opened a new chapter in a life that had already seen enough adventure for three lifetimes.The Seahawk turns out to be the rustiest of buckets, with sprung, busted, and ancient equipment guaranteed to fail at any critical moment. Life is never dull out on the Grand Banks, and no one is better at capturing the flavor and details of the wild ride that is swordfishing, from the technical complexities of longline fishing and the nuances of reading the weather and waves to the sheer beauty of the open water. The trip is full of surprises, "a bit hardier and saltier than I had hoped for," but none more unexpected than when the boat's lines inadvertently drift across the Canadian border and she lands in jail. Seaworthy is about nature -- human and other; about learning what you can control and what you do when fate takes matters out of your control. It's about how a middle-aged woman who sets a high bar for herself copes with challenge and change and frustration, about the struggle to succeed or fail on your own terms, and above all, about learning how to find your true self when you're caught between land and sea.

Book Summary:

For gardeners who want to conserve water, the color, fragrance, shade, and lush vegetation of a traditional garden may seem like a mirage in the desert. But such gardens can flourish when native plants grow in them. In this book, Judy Mielke, an expert on Southwestern gardening, offers the most comprehensive guide available to landscaping with native plants. Writing simply enough for beginning gardeners, while also providing ample information for landscape professionals, she presents over three hundred trees, shrubs, vines, grasses, groundcovers, wildflowers, cacti, and other native plants suited to arid landscapes. The heart of the book lies in the complete descriptions and beautiful color photographs of plants native to the Mojave, Sonoran, and Chihuahuan desert regions of the southwestern United States and northern Mexico. Mielke characterizes each plant and gives detailed information on its natural habitat, its water, soil, light, temperature, and pruning requirements, and its possible uses in landscape design. In addition, Mielke includes informative discussions of desert ecology, growing instructions for native plants and wildflowers, and "how-to" ideas for revegetation of disturbed desert areas using native plants. She concludes the book with an extensive list of plants by type, including those that have specific features such as shade or fragrance. She also supplies a list of public gardens that showcase native plants.
