I’m in Springfield, IL. I've been planting midwest native plants in my yard over the past 10 years. I'm a lazy gardener, but it's been amazing and nourishing to watch the ways they ebb and flow each year and thrive so much better than the non-native plants in the long run. And all the different insects they care for….

Love this conversation -- it would be awesome to be able to have these conversations with our parents/ grandparents, etc. They are abstract and finding the language to feel/ heal/ connect. My entire family are landscapers started by my dad who did it to survive and support the family. But he LOVES it and to him it is his art. he calls himself an artist. My youngest brother is now doing a Phd in conservation/ saving bees...and he is bringing these new methods to the family business. it has been cool to see it a part of conflict but also bringing them together as my dad teaches him the business (he's retiring) and my brothers teach him
