Gardening Series, Part 21
Deepen Your Partnership

Update: July 2020

The Gardening Series


Summer reading to help you better understand the purpose of your partnership with nature.

During those times when it's too dang hot to be outside in your garden, we have the perfect summer reading for you.

Chapter 14 of your Perelandra Garden Workbook, beginning on page 229, offers a collection of sessions (discussions) that Machaelle had with nature during her years of working in the garden.

Each session is just a page or a few pages. We think it helps to read one session at a time and let that sink in before you move on to the next one. These are pages you'll come back to again and again, each time broadening your understanding of nature, your garden and your partnership.


Reading the sessions are like an intimate "sit down" with a good friend, listening with appreciation as they let you into their inner world. You know those talks. They are special moments and afterwards, though you go back to day-to-day life, you feel closer to this friend, the relationship stronger and more real.

In Chapter 14, you will learn about a wide range of interesting topics: Soil Balancing, Geopathic Zones, Triangles, Insects and Communication, Food Production and Chemical Manipulation, Benefits of the Co-Creative Partnership, Earthworms and Robins . . . And a session you may have read before, Pan on Planet Earth.

As you take all of this in, you will find your work in your garden, your attitude and your response to "problems" all begin to change. Your understanding of your place in the bigger picture, and your responsibility, will deepen and grow, and your partnership will expand.

Enjoy your summer and your garden.
