Drop Everything and Garden

“Everything that slows us down and forces patience, everything that sets us back into the slow circles of nature, is a help.  Gardening is an instrument of grace.”

– May Sarton

Parking at Nature’s Path head office the other day, I was pleasantly surprised to witness a Planting session at the Garden.   There was something so beautiful and affirming in that scene.    It made me want to sing out, “The team that gardens together, stays together!”   I didn’t sing but I did take some photos to share with you.

Wouldn’t it be great if every company had a garden?

Wouldn’t it be great if everybody in every company sowed seeds at work?

Ask for it. Create it.

Plant seeds, watch them sprout, grow and blossom.

Marvel at the flowers.
