This spring, just add water

By Kimberly Burnham

waterKnown as the Resurrection Plant, Haberlea rhodopensis is famous for “its ability to withstand drought and to revitalize when returned to optimal conditions after a long time in desiccation [dried out]. It is a mere fact that this plant not only can completely resurrect from a dried state but is also able to bring back the natural biochemical compositions of its cells.”

Just add water and it comes back to life! Many seeds also need water in the spring to germinate and grow.

Seventy percent is often given as the percentage of water in the human body but it is not all the same. Younger people generally have a higher percentage of water. Thinner people have a higher percentage of water. Water also covers about 70 percent of the earth. As we move into spring, the season of regeneration, new growth and color, it is worth thinking about whether we care adequately about our water and our global community’s water sources.

How much water do I drink each day? Is it enough?

Where does my water come from?

Am I downstream from industrial or agricultural pollutants?

What is my responsibility to make sure other people, everyone, has enough water?

The United Nations Millennium Development Goal (MDG) estimates 780 million people are still without improved sources of drinking water, and many more still lack safe drinking water.

And finally, what besides water do I need to bring myself back to life this spring?
