Author's note:

Throughout the world, most people live in cities or urban communities and don't feel a strong connection with the land on which they live. Often people think they own the land - that it belongs to them as a thing, a possession.

But, at the same time, we depend completely on the land to feed us and support us and inspire us. And so we can see that it is the other way around: we belong to the land. If we keep it healthy, it will sustain the web of life on which we depend.

In some cities, communities are working to bring back the variety of local native plants and animals that once lived there. People are discovering the need to nurture and be nurtured by the unique character of the place where they live.

In takes time, as this book shows. But by understanding the land on which we live and by caring for it we can choose between just having a place to live or belonging to a living home.
