Mindfulness in Your Home Garden
Rediscover your home garden as a place of productivity, nourishment, and refuge in this 4-week online engagement class.
You will have the opportunity to explore your garden from new angles both literally and figuratively through structured activities drawing from traditions of nature observation, agricultural science, and mindfulness that will reveal unique elements of your garden’s character and your personal relationship to it. You will also participate in hands-on activities each week in your home garden, such as digging in the soil, pressing leaves or flowers, measuring biodiversity, and mapping.
At the end of the class, you will have a better understanding of your garden from both a scientific and human perspective. By spending this dedicated time in your garden, you will reap the health benefits of time outdoors in nature, acts of care and stewardship, physical activity, and mindfulness.
