A mug of tea and orange cake warm out of the oven. A dusty library and spirited conversations about breathing life into a tired space. A blustery autumn day and a site visit with a rugged up toddler and a young impatient girl. The adults point and pace and plan. The girl plays Russian roulette with a tape measure. Talking to herself, stepping out the length of “the corns” and ” the zucchinis” impatient to dig the beds in. Autumn is not a funny time to start a garden, you wait til Spring!
Gardens, scholars say, are the first sign of commitment to a community. When people plant corn they are saying, lets stay here. And by their connection the land, they are connected to one another – Anne Raver
