Once again, you did it. My Paradigms have shifted. I am going to sit down and start going over your book right now. It was a pleasure and very interesting. You did a great job!

What is Organic Land Care?

Organic land care is the design, installation and maintenance of landscapes to promote and preserve environmental health both above and below ground.

These practices arise from the understanding that all organisms in nature are interdependent, and in order to have healthy plants we must foster the health of their entire ecosystem.

Organic land care practices go beyond integrated pest management, beyond the use of so-called organic fertilizers and pesticides. They acknowledge the concept of intrinsic health, and seek to create environments that cater to the well-being of all their inhabitants.

Organic land care professionals know that they are but stewards of the land, and can at best hope to work WITH nature, never to dominate it.

"A human being is part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. We experience ourselves, our thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest. A kind of optical delusion of consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from the prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. The true value of a human being is determined by the measure and the sense in which they have obtained liberation from the self. We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if humanity is to survive." Albert Einstein, 1954
