Gardening outdoors has even more benefits. Indoor or outdoor, spending some time with plants is a GREAT way to rewild the self, but there’s more to planting wildly than meets the eye.
Plants native to an ecosystem are adapted to the land and have built symbiotic relationships with other plants and wildlife in their ecosystem, sometimes over thousands of years.
Invasive plants are new plants introduced to ecosystems by an outside source. They are often harmful to native plants and destructive to ecosystems. By learning more about and nurturing plant species native to the wild where you live, you can help protect and restore it.
