HEALTH and NUTRITION
At Design by Plants we understand "health" as "wholeness". The health of our living landscapes has a direct bearing on our own health and well-being. Plants feed us, heal us, clean our air and water systems, rejuvenate soils and support ecological systems. The living world also sustains our spirit and we are most comfortably alive when we are in nature receiving signals that our ancient minds decipher as security: Running water means clean water; flowers promise fruit the following season and the regeneration of life, and a stone wall captures the sun’s warmth and offers stability. We are nourished by the life around us, especially in the garden where we see abundance, delight, transformation and wonder.
