From Orchards, Fields, and Gardens

From Orchards, Fields, and Gardens is a lovely book produced and edited by Kerstin Svendsen. It combines art, poetry, and prose and thoughtfully explores our relationship to the earth. Many interesting suggestions for further reading and learning are provided by each participant. Check out the book page here. Kerstin has posed an interesting proposition to support  Seed Savers Exchange and the  American Farmland Trust.

I was so excited when my book arrived. I spent a lovely afternoon reading and enjoying the artwork. Many of the memories and experiences are shared by so many.  This collection is a reminder of those good things that need to be preserved and reintroduced into life.
