Before meeting my husband I was not a plant person. All the garden photos you see are one hundred percent his doing. I am so thankful for that. He has created a little ecosystem on our patio that has been such a light. These are some books I have read and some I’ve been meaning to get to. But all have to do with our connection to nature. Today in my stories I highlight a topic that is dear to me, helping the monarch butterflies. I hope you’ll check it out and learn something new! Colonization and white supremacy have conditioned us to believe that we must dominate nature. But Indigenous science and wisdom teaches us we are a part of nature and we must work with nature. It’s the only way forward. I’m trying to reconnect myself to the dirt beneath me. It’s been a bumpy road, but it’s always fun to get my hands in the dirt.
