Quotes by Benjamin Vogt  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Your garden is a protest. It is a place of defiant compassion.
It is a space to help sustain wildlife and ecosystem function while providing an aesthetic response that moves you. For you, beauty isn’t just petal-deep but goes down into the soil, farther down into the aquifer and back up into the air and for miles around on the backs and legs of insects. You don’t have to see microbes in action, birds eating seeds, butterflies laying eggs, ants farming aphids….Your garden is a protest for all the ways in which we deny our life by denying other lives. Plant some natives. Be defiantly compassionate.”
Benjamin Vogt, A New Garden Ethic: Cultivating Defiant Compassion for an Uncertain Future

“Ultimately, every garden is an ideology.”
Benjamin Vogt, A New Garden Ethic: Cultivating Defiant Compassion for an Uncertain Future

“Of the approximately 93 species of butterfly species in California, --a botanically rich and diverse state—65 species can only reproduce on native plants.”
Benjamin Vogt, A New Garden Ethic: Cultivating Defiant Compassion for an Uncertain Future
