Ecological Gardening quotes by Toby Hemenway
#1. It is only our limited time frame that creates the whole "natives versus exotics" controversy. Wind animals, sea currents, and continental drift have always dispersed species into new environments... The planet has been awash in surging , swarming species movement since life began. The fact that it is not one great homogeneous tangled weed lot is persuasive testimony to the fact that intact ecosystems are very difficult to invade. #Quote by Toby Hemenway
Ecological Gardening quotes by Jeannie Mobley
#2. It won't be a chore, it will be a garden,' Holena said. #Quote by Jeannie Mobley

Ecological Gardening quotes by Alan Titchmarsh
#4. I had the heaviest paper round in Ilkley, West Yorks, and if you look at my shoulders one is still lower than the other. I also did a milk round for a day. It was awful. I was a very surly milkman, because it was very cold, very dark and very early. I am a lark, not an owl, but not in winter when it's chilly. Apart from that I went straight into gardening at 15. #Quote by Alan Titchmarsh
Ecological Gardening quotes by David Quammen
#5. In ecological terms, we are almost paradoxical: large-bodied and long-lived but grotesquely abundant. We are an outbreak. #Quote by David Quammen
Ecological Gardening quotes by Mike Mills
#6. If you ask me, the place that a story happens is as equal character. It's almost like an ecological viewpoint: These people are living in this piece of land, and in this piece of land in this time this is possible. For me, I almost think location first. It's time first - what year is it - then where are we, and then who is in it. #Quote by Mike Mills
Ecological Gardening quotes by David L. Culp
#7. Beyond the harm to local wildlife, any chemicals we used in our garden might end up polluting our well, or run off the property. In a heavy rainstorm, this runoff may end up in nearby Beaver Creek, a tributary to the Brandywine Creek, which runs into the Delaware River, which flows into the Atlantic Ocean. These kinds of direct connections with the outside world exist in every garden, which is why I think we should always aim, in our gardening practices, to do the least harm and the greatest good. #Quote by David L. Culp
Ecological Gardening quotes by William Shakespeare
#8. Do not spread the compost on the weeds. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Ecological Gardening quotes by Mabel Osgood Wright
#9. It is really astonishing how few colors are inharmonious when they are profusely massed and have green for a background. #Quote by Mabel Osgood Wright
Ecological Gardening quotes by Matt Ridley
#10. These new people had something special: they were not prisoners of their ecological niche, but could change their habits quite easily if prey disappeared, or better opportunities arose. #Quote by Matt Ridley
Ecological Gardening quotes by William Shakespeare
#11. Sweet flowers are slow and weeds make haste. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Ecological Gardening quotes by Stephen E. Ambrose
#12. Burial practices illustrated the two men's different outlooks. Custer believed a body should be buried in a long-lasting metal casket, thus removing the body from the ecological system by preventing bacteria from breaking it down and feeding it back into the soil. Crazy Horse believed in wrapping a body inside a buffalo robe and placing it on a scaffold on an open hillside, where the elements could break it down in a year or two. It would then come up again as buffalo grass, to be eaten by the buffalo, which would then be eaten by the Sioux, completing the circle. #Quote by Stephen E. Ambrose
Ecological Gardening quotes by David
#13. If I am right in saying that thought is the ultimate origin or source, it follows that if we don't do anything about thought, we won't get anywhere. We may momentarily relieve the population problem, the ecological problem, and so on, but they will come back in another way. #Quote by David
Ecological Gardening quotes by James Douglas
#14. It is a good idea to be alone in a garden at dawn or dark so that all its shy presences may haunt you and possess you in a reverie of suspended thought. #Quote by James Douglas
Ecological Gardening quotes by Jessica N. Turner
#15. Now, you might be saying, "Jessica, I am not crafty." I hear you. But I am not talking about crafts. I am talking about living out the God-given passions that are inside of us. Creativity isn't crafting; it is any original expression you pursue - running, playing music, gardening, sewing, cooking, and so on are all creative acts. Even activities like volunteering and throwing parties are creative pursuits because by giving of ourselves for others we are expressing ourselves in a meaningful way. Moreover, these are activities that inspire us in an indescribable way. And when we make room in our days to include them, we feel more alive and joyful. #Quote by Jessica N. Turner
Ecological Gardening quotes by Vandana Shiva
#16. The reductionist measure of yield is to agriculture systems, what GDP is to economic systems. It is time to move from measuring yield of commodities, to health and well-being of ecosystems and communities. Industrial agriculture has its roots in war. Ecological agriculture allows us to make peace with the earth, soil and the society. #Quote by Vandana Shiva
Ecological Gardening quotes by Fritjof Capra
#17. When the concept of human spirit is understood as the mode of consciousness in which the individual feels connected to the Cosmos as a whole, it becomes clear that ecological awareness is spiritual in its deepest sense. #Quote by Fritjof Capra
Ecological Gardening quotes by Robert Muller
#18. There are thousands of books on the joy of gardening and cooking. Alas, there are only few on the joy of living. #Quote by Robert Muller
Ecological Gardening quotes by Stuart L. Hart
#19. The money economy thus leaves a large ecological footprint, defined as the amount of land and resources required to meet a typical consumer's needs. For example, with only about 4% of the world's population, the United States, the largest money economy, consumes in excess of one-quarter of the world's energy and materials and generates in excess of 25 percent of the world's greenhouse gas emissions. #Quote by Stuart L. Hart
Ecological Gardening quotes by Beau Bridges
#20. I also like to garden. I grow things, vegetables, flowers ... I particularly like orchids. I raise orchids. #Quote by Beau Bridges
Ecological Gardening quotes by Jurgen Moltmann
#21. It is modern narrow-mindedness to relate the church only to the world of human beings; it has always been cosmos-orientated too, and is so still. If the church sees itself as the beginning and germ of the new creation, then the present ecological crisis is not just a crisis of modern civilization. It is the church's crisis in this civilization as well. The suffering of weaker creatures is the church's suffering too. 'If one member suffers, all suffer together.' What suffers is not just 'our natural environment'; it is God's environment as well. The modern nihilistic destruction of nature is nothing other than practised atheism. The perpetrators are excommunicating themselves from the community of creation.

In the face of this danger, a new cosmic spirituality is developing in many groups and churches today, a spirituality in which we reverence God's hidden presence in all living things and hope for their future in the kingdom of God. #Quote by Jurgen Moltmann
Ecological Gardening quotes by Mary F. Irish
#22. This is, however, one of the greatest delights of a garden; the nearly hypnotic ability it has to make you slow down, consider things about life more carefully, wrangle over difficulties with care and imagination rather than anger and ferocity. #Quote by Mary F. Irish
Ecological Gardening quotes by Maude Barlow
#23. At the heart of the WTO is an assault on everything left standing in the commons, in the public realm. Everything is now for sale. Even those areas of life that we once considered sacred like health and education, food and water and air and seeds and genes and a heritage. It is all now for sale. Economic freedom - not democracy, and not ecological stewardship - is the defining metaphor of the WTO and its central goal is humanity's mastery of the natural world through its total commodification. #Quote by Maude Barlow
Ecological Gardening quotes by J. Carter Brown
#24. No one will understand a Japanese garden until you've walked through one, and you hear the crunch underfoot, and you smell it, and you experience it over time. Now there's no photograph or any movie that can give you that experience. #Quote by J. Carter Brown
Ecological Gardening quotes by Jane Garmey
#25. I have a friend who can't bear the sight of any flower whose stamens show. It may sound Victorian and quaint, but this antipathy makes her gardening exquisitely simple. #Quote by Jane Garmey
Ecological Gardening quotes by Gary L. Francione
#26. If you are a feminist and are not a vegan, you are ignoring the exploitation of female nonhumans and the commodification of their reproductive processes, as well as the destruction of their relationship with their babies;
If you are an environmentalist and not a vegan, you are ignoring the undeniable fact that animal agriculture is an ecological disaster;
If you embrace nonviolence but are not a vegan, then words of nonviolence come out of your mouth as the products of torture and death go into it;
If you claim to love animals but you are eating them or products made from them, or otherwise consuming them, you see loving as consistent with harming that which you claim to love.
Stop trying to make excuses. There are no good ones to make. Go vegan. #Quote by Gary L. Francione
Ecological Gardening quotes by J.M. Roberts
#27. Overall, the anarchy was the most creative of all periods of Japanese culture for in it there appeared the greatest landscape painting, the culmination of the skill of landscape gardening and the arts of flower arrangement, and the No drama. #Quote by J.M. Roberts
Ecological Gardening quotes by Robert Irwin
#28. Gardening always has been an art, essentially. #Quote by Robert Irwin
Ecological Gardening quotes by Ursula K. Le Guin
#29. Capitalism's grow-or-die imperative stands radically at odds with ecology's imperative of interdependence and limit. The two imperatives can no longer coexist with each other; nor can any society founded on the myth that they can be reconciled hope to survive. Either we will establish an ecological society or society will go under for everyone, irrespective of his or her status ["On the Future of the Left," Motherboard, February 4, 2015]. #Quote by Ursula K. Le Guin
Ecological Gardening quotes by Vigen Guroian
#30. Gardening symbolizes our race's primordial acceptance of a responsibility and role in rectifying the harm done to the creation through sin. #Quote by Vigen Guroian
Ecological Gardening quotes by Shimon Peres
#31. The foes now are universal - poverty, famine, religious radicalization, desertification, drugs, proliferation of nuclear weapons, ecological devastation. They threaten all nations, just as science and information are the potential friends of all nations. Classical diplomacy and strategy were aimed at identifying enemies and confronting them. Now they have to identify dangers, global or local, and tackle them before they become disasters. #Quote by Shimon Peres
Ecological Gardening quotes by Russell Page
#32. A garden really lives only insofar as it is an expression of faith, the embodiment of a hope and a song of praise. #Quote by Russell Page
Ecological Gardening quotes by Jamaica Kincaid
#33. Gardening is really an extended form of reading, of history and philosophy. The garden itself has become like writing a book. I walk around and walk around. Apparently people often see me standing there and they wave to me and I don't see them because I am reading the landscape. #Quote by Jamaica Kincaid
Ecological Gardening quotes by Liberty Hyde Bailey
#34. A garden requires patient labor and attention. Plants do not grow merely to satisfy ambitions or to fulfill good intentions. They thrive because someone expended effort on them. #Quote by Liberty Hyde Bailey
Ecological Gardening quotes by Charles Eisenstein
#35. The point here is not that emissions don't matter. It is a call for a shift in priorities. On the policy level, we need to shift toward protecting and healing ecosystems on every level, especially the local. On a cultural level, we need to reintegrate human life with the rest of life, and bring ecological principles to bear on social healing. On the level of strategy and thought, we need to shift the narrative toward life, love, place, and participation. Even if we abandoned the emissions narrative, if we do these things emissions will surely fall as well. #Quote by Charles Eisenstein
Ecological Gardening quotes by Joel Salatin
#36. The linear, single species idea of farming is an assault on ecological function. Something's going to break down in that system - anything from soil structure, in economics ... but where to start is with true ecological function. #Quote by Joel Salatin
Ecological Gardening quotes by Neil Postman
#37. Technological change is not additive; it is ecological. A new technology does not merely add something; it changes everything. #Quote by Neil Postman
Ecological Gardening quotes by Tom Irwin
#38. Exercise your creative muscles all the time, either through classes or through other artistic avenues like painting or dancing or even gardening, staying active and being creative so that when opportunities do come up, you are in a position to take advantage of them. #Quote by Tom Irwin
Ecological Gardening quotes by W.S. Merwin
#39. A garden is made of hope. #Quote by W.S. Merwin
Ecological Gardening quotes by Dan Barber
#40. We need the humbleness and clarity to see that our food, while benefitting from technological advances, has benefitted even more from free ecological resources: Cheap energy, lots of water everywhere, and a stable climate. #Quote by Dan Barber
Ecological Gardening quotes by Ted Cadsby
#41. We are facing greater ecological instability, deeper social complexity and a growing need for individual meaning that would be foreign to all but our most recent ancestors. We cannot reach the destinations we choose for ourselves if we do not alter our navigation systems to accommodate the greater complexity in our lives #Quote by Ted Cadsby
Ecological Gardening quotes by Thomas Wentworth Higginson
#42. Nothing can hide from me the conviction that an immortal soul needs for its sustenance something more than visiting, and gardening, and novel-reading, and crochet-needle, and the occasional manufacture of sponge cake. #Quote by Thomas Wentworth Higginson
