Why We Garden
Cultivating A Sense of PlaceeBook
Describes gardening as a nurturing process, providing a sense of participation with nature, and encourages us to rediscover the roots that connect us with our surroundings
The spirit of gardening is a deepening connection with nature that transforms the gardener into an adventurer encountering lessons great and small. Author Jim Nollman sees the connection to the garden as the space in which a genuine healing relationship between person and place can be formed.
Why We Garden is full of helpful tips from Nollman's decades of gardening experience, along with the Zen of gardening--the sense of place and purpose and what tending the land means to us. A beautifully written gem for the gardener seeking the simplicity and spirit of the land and a gift for all who are stewards of the earth.
