Call me witchy, but I believe the earth can give us some answers if we listen. “This forest is made of plants 
brought over from Europe. 
Their seeds touched soil 
and found it pleasing, 
and their roots and branches 
grew strong and choked out 
the plants who were there before 
the new ones arrived.

Scientists tell us 
that diversity is necessary 
to the survival 
of our ecosystems. 
The preservation 
of native plant species 
is paramount. 
How can those plants thrive again?
Listen carefully to the answer.” Poem by Rebecca
