Roots - Christine M.

It's not been one garden that's special for me, but every one of them. My Mother had me plant my own vegetables and take care of them, and that brought a sense of accomplishment when I was young. When I was older, I helped my now deceased Father plant a grand garden, and my children contributed to the upkeep. They are teens and have their own gardens as do I. Having a garden, wherever I move, lets me be close to family that I miss dearly.

My Children talk about Granpda while we are gardening and I tell them stories about my parents and I while I was young. We have moved quite a bit, but I always plant a garden , it's my way of taking roots.

Why Garden?

"Only gardening supports aesthetic, scientific, social and political pursuits, and invites exercise as well."
