According to The Independent newspaper, "Sir David Attenborough warned that children who lack any understanding of the natural world would not grow into adults who cared about the environment." The paper continues, "Children have lost touch with the natural world and are unable to identify common animals and plants, according to a survey." This comes as no surprise here. A whole generation, or two has lost touch with the natural world. This could be a huge concern for us in the horticulture business, but I will look at it as a huge opportunity. We talked about this last year. Small garden centers can become the new information place for all things natural. We have an incredible opportunity to be be the place that teaches the next generation how to be better stewards of the land.
