Good episode? Give it some love!
One of the most hopeful approaches to addressing the loss of species diversity that is part of the climate change crisis comes from the work of Dr. Doug Tallamy. In last week’s episode I invited Coralie Palmer to help me introduce his conservation initiative - homegrown national parks. This was the start of an on-going series for the Horses for Future Podcast.

Last week we presented an overview of Dr. Tallamy’s work. Now in this episode we’ll be getting into the details. We’ll begin with one of his key elements - shrinking the lawn. Why a smaller lawn? What is wrong with having an expanse of green grass surrounding your house? That’s the first question. Then once you’ve decided to shrink your lawn, what does that look like, and how do you go about doing it?

You can’t take something away without putting something else in its place. So what will we be planting as we shrink the lawn? Those are some of the questions we’ll be considering beginning with this series.
