“I have found . . . that people garden to make something grow; to interact with nature; to share, to find sanctuary, to heal . . . to leave a mark. Through gardening, we feel whole as we make our personal work of art upon our land.”

~ Julie Moir Messervy (Contemporary American landscape designer and author)

Why do you garden? Feel free to leave your reasons in the comments below. And if you don’t “garden” per se, perhaps you own a garden? If so, why? We’d love to read your responses. Maybe we can partner with you to express your own garden raison d’etre!
