This Award is a summons to action, transformation, healing, revival, and hybridization. An appeal for people to experience the diversity of plants, their balances, and dynamics—from the seed to the calyx, from the molecule to the ecosystem. An invitation to try—and, why not, to fail—because progress comes from failure.
