Reading this book felt as light and airy as a breezy summer day Though it doesn t feel like a must read from my perspective I generally enjoyed engaging with Summer Rayne Oakes and her words on nature how we can actively coexist with it some history behind our relationship with it and reminders of the wonders and beauty of its existence I also LOVED the foreword by Wade Davis and should do some googling to see if he s written anything else that will piue my interest His writing was thoughtful in a way that was different than the tone for the rest of the book which is not to say that Oakes is not thoughtful making it an interesting but still intriguing choice to start withIf you re seeking a how to book as the name suggests like many others stated this is not the book for you I do wish the title was what comes after the colon alone because this book is really about cultivating green space in your home heart and mind than it is about what to do to make a plant love you Nonetheless it was an easy read I could ve done without the abundance of testimonies that followed her thoughts on each of the topics discussed I m sure the intention was to demonstrate that Oakes isn t the only party that feels as she does but it didn t add much for me as a reader and I found myself skimming them as I got closer to the end of the book
