Presents a holistic approach to gardening and self-knowledge, emphasizing the gardener as nurturing figure rather than manipulator, and explores ancient and current teachings about the relationships between plants and people

Blackwell North Amer
In this rich and beautiful book, the former garden columnist for Vogue and New Age Journal chronicles her personal journey through indoor and outdoor gardening to greater and understanding of both herself and the green world. Inspired by master gardeners Peter and Eileen Caddy, founders of the Findhorn Community in Scotland, by the writings of Rudolf Steiner, pioneer of biodynamic gardening, and by Alan Chadwick, who combined spiritual philosophy with the French intensive method, Judith Handelsman began to explore the wonders of plants while still a city dweller and quickly grew to understand the fundamentals of gardening with a difference.
From repotting and watering to resuscitating "dying" plants to coping with pests or picking food from your garden, it's possible to infuse gardening tasks with a spirit of cooperation that yields miraculous results. Whether you have a potted plant in a city apartment or acres of land in the country, or even if you simply enjoy nature, Judith Handelsman shows how to cultivate love, sensitivity to life, and the ability to discover the fantastic in the mundane.
