DescriptionThe following text was given as the opening address to the Northeastern Recreation Research Symposium in Saratoga Springs, New York on April 7, 1991. It characterizes a mismatch between the environmental problems confronting the planet and our human capacity to perceive them and do something about them. Based on that characterization, ways in which we might begin to behave in the light of our limitations as a species as well as our potentials are discussed. The text concludes by considering the metaphorical power of gardening as a practical means for curing what ails us.
