“There can be no other occupation like gardening in which, if you were to creep up behind someone at their work, you would find them smiling.” ~Mirabel Osler
The joy of gardening. So many homes have a garden. Why? Perhaps it is purely for its aesthetic appeal or the sense of satisfaction a harvest brings. However, in a Green House home, gardening is not simply for the sake of the harvest, but more about the process. When we focus less on the end result and more on the journey, we develop a keener sense of what really matters.
What is growing in your garden? Look beyond the flowers or the vegetables growing in your garden and reflect on what has actually transpired. Were you able to engage elders in an activity that was fulfilling and meaningful to them? Did you build stronger relationships?
The Green House Project would love to learn more about how you sustain and nurture your garden. Please submit photographs and a brief description about your garden to firstname.lastname@example.org by August 29, 2011.
The winning organization will be announced at the 4th Annual Green House Project Meeting, on September 8 & 9, 2011 and will receive a new flip camera!
