The environment defined
I was (coincidentally) reading Organic Matters, a publication about organic wine growing by NZ Winegrowers, with half an ear listening to two of my grand-daughters as they unpacked a few Christmas presents.
Jemina (5) as she tore the cellophane wrapping from an activities book This is bad for the environment.
No response from Olive (nearly 5)
Jemima: “Do you know what environment is?”
Jemima: “Well, it’s (long pause)… everything.”
That made me feel slightly more optimistic about the future of our planet.
