Scientists have been working to build awareness of the importance of maintaining the biodiversity of planet Earth - to ensure our children inherit a cleaner, greener, more ecologically sustainable world.
A recent report has been circulated by the George Morris Centre on the benefits of ornamental horticulture. This report is now available on the CNLA website in both English and French. It is a comprehensive literature review of scientific publications and studies that have been published and accepted. The report groups these benefits into three categories: Economic, Environmental, and Lifestyle.
Simply put - it's easy to be green. Doing our part to protect and preserve our urban green spaces is what we do. It is a critical part of urban living. Let's not pave our urban playground, but create a paradise of living green spaces, full of colour that provide environmental, economic and lifestyle benefits!
