I couldn't resist this title in today's New York Times. 

The thrust of the piece seems to be that we have to be flexible about what we grow in our garden. What is "native" is not as relevant as "will it grow here now". 

At Imani Garden, we're trying to address climate change by building a greenhouse that is warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

We all need to thing about how to adapt. Climate change is no longer a hypothetical, it's getting very real.
