The Botany of Desire
Plants, the partner of human life
Food, clothing, shelter – life
It’s astonishing how little we learn about plants in school or through the media.
We’re dependent on them – 100% dependent on them – yet the average person knows more about Hollywood celebrities and football scores than he or she knows about the plants within a hundred yard radius of where they live.
An intelligent education system would include plant education – real plant eduction – from nursery school onwards with ever growing levels of sophistication so that every high school grad would know the names, nature, cultivation method and uses of every plant they live among and depend on.
It would be an easy thing to accomplish.
Is it possible that societal “plant ignorance” is a value to people who’d like to control society lock, stock and barrel?
