UN International Year of Plant Health 2020
At the behest of Finland UN has dedicated 2020 to raise awareness about plant health and the impact of healthy plants and forests on food security, poverty, economic development, and sustainability. Life on Earth would not exist without plants, yet the world continues to destroy large areas of forests daily. Plants are responsible for roughly 98% of the Earth's oxygen and about 80% of the world's food. Healthy plants also help protect the environment, preserve biodiversity, and reduce the harmful effects of climate change.
This is the time to research and learn more about the biodiversity of your area and plant local provenance plants. A grant from your local Council or NRM could help you. (read more below)
