Fostering wildlife and native plants "making our landscapes contributors to the local ecosystem" has become a goal of so many gardeners. In her new book, Wild By Design: The Rise of Ecological Restoration, Laura J. Martin traces how this became so. Introducing a remarkable band of ecologically minded pioneers, many of them women, Martin describes how this consciousness spread through the land preservation and gardening communities, how the understanding of restoration has changed over time, and what the future may hold with climate change.
