Sowing seeds of change

 

This drawing was made for "de Boterbergen" in Natuurpunt Stappersven. It is a picture of the future. The drawing gives perspective of how this place, now quite barren after nature restoration works, will recover, find a balance and flourish to its fullest potential as it did long, long time ago.  Sometimes nature restoration works feel like a step backwards.  Only if we are able to see the greater potential of this place, can we understand why some work might be helpful to restore the place to its fullest potential.

We naturally use our own frame of reference of how we have known this place to be, but we sometimes forget that our ancestors knew this place as wild nature. Our minds are often incapable of imagining how it would have been. Restoring conditions, to give nature the possibility to recover might very well result in even a wilder place than we could have ever imagined.
