Douglas Tallamy, Professor of Entomology and Wildlife Ecology at Univ. of Delaware & author of the best-selling Bringing Nature Home: How You Can Sustain Wildlife Using Native Plants:
"If you have ever wondered what you can do to slow -- or better yet, stop -- the deterioration of the natural world around us, Ellen Sousa’s “The Green Garden” is for you. If you want to enjoy a feeling of accomplishment, or feel empowered to improve the quality of your life as well as the lives of thousands of your fellow species, then read the “The Green Garden”. If you are eager to use your yard to remove tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, purify rain water, recharge your local aquifer, improve the water quality in your nearest stream, reduce your heating and cooling bills, build complex and stable food webs, enable ecosystem function, filter the air you breath, help prevent floods, moderate entire weather systems, and reconnect with the nature in act and spirit, while you are sustaining biodiversity, “The Green Garden” will guide you every step of the way."
"...a comprehensive, engaging, and personal work that traces her own journey toward stewardship and tolerance while providing a clear and compelling road map for others embarking on this path."

"Although focused on "New England", Ellen's book is really a strong sustainable gardening book that I highly recommend, particularly for native gardeners in northeastern United States."
