A narrative poetic journey into the heart of reality, The Book of The Garden opens the possibility that the Imagination can be a vehicle to a reality neither exclusively internal nor completely external, but situated between them both-an intimate World that comes into being as we embrace and believe in its possibility, not as an imaginative fiction, but as an ontological actuality. A world where our deepest longings find their resolution through their own creative arising-where our True Nature magically manifests "universe upon universe." A poetic vision both alchemical and personally revealing, The Book of The Garden speaks to the deepest heart in each individual, opening the spiritual and transcendent through the simplest of presences, in what becomes the Garden we have all, since our childhood, longed to re-enter. And where we find that through the heart of love, and our own Creative Imagination, we can.

“What better way to begin to explore the natural world than to experience the magic and beauty of a family garden.” —Arden Bucklin-Sporer, author of How to Grow a School Garden Many gardeners find that once they have children gardening goes the way of late-night dinner parties and Sunday morning sleep-ins. Raising kids and maintaining a garden can be a juggling act, leaving the family garden forgotten and neglected. But kids can make great gardening companions, and the benefits of including them are impossible to ignore. Gardening gets kids outdoors and away from television and video games, increases their connection to plants and animals, and helps build enthusiasm for fresh fruits and vegetables. Their involvement becomes the real harvest of a family garden. In The Book of Gardening Projects for Kids, Whitney Cohen and John Fisher draw on years of experience in the Life Lab Garden Classroom and gardening with their own children to teach parents how to integrate the garden into their family life, no matter its scope or scale. The book features simple, practical gardening advice, including how to design a play-friendly garden, ideas for fun-filled theme gardens, and how to cook and preserve the garden's bounty. 101 engaging, family-friendly garden activities are also featured, from making Crunch-n-Munch Vegetable Beds and Muddy Miniature Masterpieces to harvesting berries for Fresh Fruity Pops.
