Sacred Gardening Workshop – Report

[originally written 10/28/08]

After writing that last blog, I realized that there was a gap since I had not written any report on my Sacred Gardening workshop from Oct. 12th. In short, the workshop went well. There were 10 participants and it was a stunning warm, October day. The “Lunch with a Tree” activity seemed to really touch most of the people, which was a goal for the wksp.
