First Ward Community Garden.

11 01 2011

This past Saturday, Nicole, Carter, Matt, Becky and I (Kate) headed to some green space in our neighborhood, a corner plot sandwiched between shotgun homes and the downtown skyline, in order to spend a few life-giving hours in dirt and vegetation with a delightfully motley crew of fellow neighbors and gardeners. As Wendell Berry muses, “We have lived our lives by the assumption that what was good for us would be good for the world. We have been wrong. We must change our lives so that it will be possible to live by the contrary assumption, that what is good for the world will be good for us. And that requires that we make the effort to know the world and learn what is good for it.”
