WHY WE GARDEN
Cultivating a Sense of Place
This book is full of helpful tips from the author’s decades of gardening experience, plus the Zen of gardening—the sense of place and purpose, what tending the land means to us. A wonderful gift for the gardener seeking the simplicity and spirit of the land.
Nollman shares his observations on “plant personalities” and discusses unorthodox types of gardens in a way that is entertaining as well as instructive. His biocentric approach is about a fundamental connection with nature that transforms the act of gardening into an adventure filled with lessons great and small. He advocates for gardens as spaces for a genuine healing relationship between person and place.
