Our Chapter wishes to create a refuge- a sanctuary- for all of us to use to nurture and heal our spirit, body, and mind. We couldn’t think of a better place than nature to seek and find peace, delight, and joy. Luckily, for us living in North Carolina, surrounded with so much natural beauty, this is not a difficult task.
Wild Ones, Native Plants, Natural Landscapes promotes environmentally sound landscaping practices to preserve biodiversity and ecosystem resilience through the preservation, restoration, and establishment of native plant communities.
Native plants are very important for many different reasons. Due to their specific characteristics and the way the coexist with the environment, they are more able to sustain drought, they require less pesticide, and they are intrinsically connected to the web of life in ways non-native plants are not. They provide a habitat for pollinators to find food and shelter. Our food production depends on the web of life.
As the summer season begins, and the wildflowers continue to bloom, we encourage you take the opportunity to experience and enjoy all that nature has to offer. We also hope that this experience will increase your awareness of the perils of our Mother Earth and your commitment to making a difference.
Flowers are a source of comfort and they are rich in symbolic meaning. Flowers are used to give thanks and express gratitude. This beautiful collection of native North Carolina wildflowers is to thank all of you who work so hard everyday to make the world a better place.
With Infinite Gratitude, Wishing You Love.
