Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
In Tending The Earth, Mending The Spirit: The Healing Gifts Of Gardening, Connie Goldman and Richard Mahler successfully collaborate to explore the enduring wisdom and spiritual growth that simple gardening nurtures. We are introduced to a host of gardeners who have learned nature's lessons of the natural order of things. These are powerful reflections on the sacredness of a mindful relationship with the natural world, from preparing the soil, to planting the seed, to nurturing the plant, to savoring the garden, to the harvest and conclusion of the cycle of life made manifest in the seasons of the garden. Tending The Earth, Mending The Spirit is highly recommended reading for gardeners, students of spirituality, as well as seekers of personal harmony and recovery from the stresses of their lives.
