Yaz’s thoughts on gardening:

“A sprawling green lawn in California was a bad idea that never should have blossomed. If we could collectively simply adjust our attitudes we would find surprisingly more beautiful and sustainable solutions for our future.

In areas where you’re already watering, why not also produce something delicious for the table. Plant a citrus tree. That way, your water is doing double duty and you have a healthy snack at arms reach.”

Saving water is important because…

…it’s precious, limited, and vital to all forms of life. We can no longer afford to take it for granted.
