The earth forevermore a garden . . .

Humankind forevermore her gardeners.
Gardens of the World with Audrey Hepburn

“Of all the parks in Paris,
Jardin Du Luxembourg

is the most successful in
joining the pleasures of
park and garden
on a human scale.

It is a sixty-acre
sanctuary,

where one
is encouraged
to loiter in nature.


Audrey Hepburn,

The United Nations has set a target to restore 15 per cent of the world's degraded ecosystems by 2020. Botanic gardens around the world have responded to the UN’s challenge by joining together to form the Ecological Restoration Alliance of Botanic Gardens (ERA), with the objective of sharing their skills, resources and plant materials to scale up restoration activities around the world.
