I get permission to see other people's yards, which means I see their imaginations in action as they break away from conventional ways of approaching nature. I get to see a lot of courage, persistence and vision--people are so heroic for taking on that laurel, those blackberries, the concrete, and the lawn. I get to talk gardening, birds, insects and of course plants, plants, plants with impassioned, curious people. I get to be a small part of something important: remaking the urban landscape for human/nonhuman coexistence rather than perpetual combat.
