My whole life revolves around gardens. I have no lawn, no grass, just fruit trees, food beds, ponds and bee hives. I eat from it, tend it and relax in it. I teach gardening, run school gardens and get my university students to think about them as metaphors for life. Gardens bridge wilderness and culture, and temper our arrogance and loneliness. They awaken us, fortify us and teach us. The next revolution begins in the garden.
