The Gardening Series

Many of you are past the sitting-at-the-table-getting-garden-information phase and into the action phase of co-creative gardening. In this new phase, the way nature interacts and communicates with you will grow (and so will you!).

Good communication is the key to success in any partnership. This is just as true when your partner is nature. So this week, take some time to review Machaelle's tips on how to ask good, smart questions.

Think about what nature is saying to us about smart questions and how nature communicates with us while we are working.

A note to all of you soil-less gardeners out there:   This important information from The Perelandra Garden Workbook also applies to your partnership with nature!


From Nature on Smart Questions
This is a great section from the Garden Workbook that all of you working on any endeavor would appreciate. It begins on page 68.

"Information is meant to be a dynamic energy, not a stagnant energy. . . . If you physically move with the information you receive, we can then expand our interaction through your physical movements. We can modify movement through intuition, and we can do it in the moment. Through the intuition, we can pass along nuances in action that were impossible to pass along to you on the mental level, resulting in a much broader understanding of that which you desire to know."

Gut Gardeners and 2.0 Gardeners

Both Gut Gardeners and 2.0 Gardeners will be asking a lot of questions through the entire garden season — while out there working in your garden and sometimes when you are just walking through, admiring and observing.

2.0 Gardeners will find themselves doing a lot of gut gardening and Gut Gardeners will want to ask some very specific yes/no questions. These suggestions from Machaelle will help all of you.

In Perelandra Garden Workbook, start reading on page 57, "Asking the Right Questions," and continue through "Nature on Smart Questions" and "Nature on Stagnant Information" on pages 68 and 69.

Here's a question!

What can you do to support biodiversity and environmental health while helping to counter the damaging impact of climate change?

Start by participating in the monthly Perelandra EoP Biodiversity Process.

Share the Biodiversity Process with others. Give them a 1/2-oz. bottle of Essence of Perelandra (EoP) along with the easy-to-follow Biodiversity Process instruction card. (We'll send as many cards as you like with your order, just ask!)

Follow Machaelle's advice, grab your Perelandra Garden Workbook and ask nature what you can do for your land as a whole, in light of the challenges and issues that are impacting it.
