About this site

This website is being developed by two Nova Scotians, one an economist and the other an ecologist, to highlight examples of urban landscapes that we see as ecologically desirable or at least pointed in that direction.

Initially those examples will be somewhat Halifax-centric, reflecting our own urban setting.

We will also collate related info,  e.g. on pollinator diversity in urban settings,  sources of native species to plant in urban settings, and on horticultural requirements of particular native species.

It will be a while before we will be comfortable with promoting the website. When we are, we will add our names to this page. Regardless, it is not about us, but about sharing and promoting ways we can live more in harmony with the natural world.
