About Ian

Urban GreeneryWelcome to World Seeds Catalog! I am Ian, an avid botanist interested in teaching people about nature and how you can benefit from it. I want to give back to the community and in so doing, help our society to take better care of the environment. I hope you enjoy it here, and we’ll both be educated about our green earth!


I am a passionate botanist, not just by name; I have studied environmental science for several years, and later on, I completed my post graduate degree in landscape and urban ecology along with the rehabilitation of degraded environments.

I want to educate people on the benefits of taking responsibility of their environment and show them how the environment will care for you and the generations to come. My life goal is to research ecological urban sustainability, a dream that will soon come to fruition.


I believe that the earth we live on sustains us as best it can, but we’re not taking very good care of it. I don’t believe there is only two lifestyles out there to build a life on; you don’t have to be either an urban dweller or tree hugger. And I also don’t believe that something cannot be achieved. So my aim is to break the barriers between urbanism, technology, modern lifestyles and the environment, natural living, self sustainability.

Urban sustainability


I want to offer services that is not easily accessible to the public. Services, such as greener living, the latest trends on how to improve your lifestyle in the urban setting. I want you to preview research that some believe is too difficult to understand and break it down into everyday applications. I want to create awareness and debunk common misunderstandings between human and nature.

If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.

All the best,


Changing Perspective
