Gardening as a healing tool


Gardening is an art, that is healing... contemplative... meditative... transformative...

You can grow some food and connect with the land upon which you live...

It grounds the mind, exercises the body, and feeds the soul with wonder ...

Babies arriving, and Dear Ones leaving over the past little while, are reminders of the fragility and transience of life...

Gardening provides a container, a context, in which gardeners can accept these things, whilst not needing to understand such mystery...
