Play in the earth, get grounded, connect deeply to the planet, nurture your body and nourish your soul.
My partner and I chose to live in beautiful East Gippsland because we wanted to connect deeply with the seasons, the circadian rhythms of nature and most of all get down and get earthy – in a nutshell, we wanted to grow our own food and live in harmony with our environment. Living in a gentle sustainable way nourishes us all, connects us to the essence of our life force and keeps our interaction and conversation with the world open and spacious.
From the moment you plant your first seed, you start a relationship with the earth. Your life is enhanced through a profound relationship with nature and life itself. The way you see yourself and the world changes forever – we begin to rejoice in the shining sun and spinning stars, feel connected to the birds, bees and worms.
A garden slows you down, supports you being quiet and calm. It sows its own gift: the knowledge that we are influenced by the seasons, affected by the weather and that we are an intrinsic part of a natural system. We are excited to share our love of gardens and all that evolves and emerges from them.
