Garden with Spirit
By: caroline sawyer (Feb 1, 2010)
All gardens/ farms make us feel the interrelationship of humanity with the natural world. Sophia has made me conscious of that interrelationship in a unique way; moreover, it has provided me a sense of steps I can take to grow in peace with my consumption patterns and the impact my life makes on the Earth and its creatures.
I joined Sophia last year, because it offered the opportunity to put my hands in the soil. That I did, and loved the weeding and transplanting. Moreover, I met interesting people to share ideas and joy with. And the produce? Absolutely delicious! Sophia has heritage; a unique place in the surrounding community, it is incredibly beautiful, and it offers more learning than I could have dreamt of.
