Gardening philosophy

A gardener can become more like a natural philosopher,  that is one who:















In taking up a more philosophical outlook gardeners not only

harvest healthy, beautiful, abundant produce,

but they also begin to participate with a real life process acting upon the plants,

and harvest insights that inform the way they relate to the garden.

Goethe took up this art of natural philosophy, and descried a way of looking to the plants:


‘Like the sun which draws forth every plant and shines on all,

he must look upon each plant with the same quiet gaze;

he must find the measure for what he learns, the data for judgement,

not in himself but in the sphere of what he observes.’
