The path to a more sustainable tomorrow, is not just gardening for the sake of composting, growing organic vegetables and doing-it-yourself, the path to a more sustainable tomorrow means taking in the notion of interconnectivity, that nothing is separate and that we are all one in the same planet, all co-dependant, water gardens remind of this fact in more than just one way.
Building your own water garden and maintaining it every day, is one way to remember how everything is interconnected, because when we build a water garden project, that project becomes a part of us and we have, through that project, learned to relate to the environment in a way that is totally different than our normal everyday lives in the city.
