Hello beautiful people!
This afternoon I did a mini-workshop making mini-gardens. That's right: I taught four small humans to embrace fairies into their homes by providing them with a comfortable little place to hang out. Gardens are a way of building community. Placing a bench in a garden or a park invites people into your community to have a seat and enjoy being a part of it.
When we live in a world where adults have hard-lined oppositions and fierce stances that can create division within our lives, I think it's important that we teach children to nurture, grow, and think beyond one's self: to provide something good, beautiful, and kind into the world, like a garden. And who knows, maybe one day, they'll help build a healthy, loving community.
