What’s the change you’re trying to bring about in the world?

I want to cure “plant blindness” so that everyone recognizes the overwhelmingly important role that native plants have played over eons in creating the environment in which we live. Also, to get native plant species through the bottleneck created by climate change, habitat loss, and invasive species. Plants are the base of food webs; they create complex interactions with all other life forms, and in doing so, harbor virtually all other life on the planet.
