Plants offer us comfort on many levels and reassure us that we our needs and those of our community will be met. Today security must also be understood in the context of potential disruptions to the food chain and access to essential resources with the added concerns of climate change. Our literal security -- as well as a daily felt-sense of it -- is linked to our participation in maintaining plant diversity, reducing carbon footprints, growing our own food and medicine and closing food, energy and water cycles through composting, renewable energy and water conservation.
