Plants offer us comfort on many levels and reassure us that we will be OK.  Today security must also be understood in the context of potential disruptions to the food chain and access to essential resources (water, energy, etc.), 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, learning the value of growing our own food and medicine, supporting local efforts of the same, conserving resources, and closing the food and water loop through composting and grey water recycling.
