"A stream of spirituality from higher regions of world existence now seeks entry into the earthly life of mankind. Whether this will happen depends upon man opening his heart and soul to what thus seeks entry, through many doors, as it were, into the earthly world from the spiritual world. It will be necessary for man not only to become conscious once more of the spiritual in all nature, but able to perceive it." Rudolf Steiner

Set up an 'ark' in your garden where half of the garden is given back to nature using a sign so that people are aware that it's not just an unkempt garden, but is an active step in regeneration for the planet.
