bio·phil·ia noun \ˌbī-ō-ˈfi-lē-ə, -ˈfēl-yə\
As the biocentric view suggests, the garden prospers when control is balanced by equal measures of humility and benevolence. A balance is struck. Control, servitude, respect, imagination, pragmatism, an ecological conscience, compliance,and a certain measure of mysticism and altruism, all meld together to provide nurturance.
