Example text

I learn what it can provide, and what I can coax from it, as my knowledge and skill continue to expand. In the garden, life and death dance before my eyes every day, and I come to a better understanding of my own health and mortality. The garden literally brings me back to my senses. A few years ago, I watched my friend, Zen grower Lana Porter, come back to her senses. The garden she works is far more than just a lush, reclaimed vacant lot—it’s a biological extension of her self, and it’s a way of life.

We need to examine the full effects of our lifestyles. New Mexico grower Stanley Crawford converses with many customers at farmers markets, who often ask him if his produce is organic. He told me he’s often tempted to ask in return, “Is your life organic? What about the money you pay me with? ” Certainly, we are far more than what we eat, but in a world so disconnected from its roots, the source of our food can be a great place to experience our own germination as activists. It may be true that we can’t all go back to living on farms, since there probably isn’t enough great land left for that.

I remember a particularly frustrating spring day in the emerging garden, trying to coax just a few more inches of depth from the rototiller. Only by the third year did we begin to see worms in the soil and vitality in the crops. Now, in the seventh year of the emerging garden, we’re really getting somewhere. Neighbors bring houseguests out to walk past the garden because it’s finally starting to look like more than a construction site. Each bed has a story to tell. Just as bright eyes and rosy cheeks indicate the health of a child, the shiny dark spinach leaves and disease-free snap beans that thrive in our garden indicate the improving health of our soil.
