Canada: Drawn into the Garden – a book and short documentary

Book by Helen Stewart

Tudor House Press, Victoria
Printed: 2020

A plea for the celebration of gardens and the wonders and wisdom of nature, this work is a spiritual and artistic meditation describing the creation of a garden, its seasons in a time of changing climate, and the importance of life-giving soil and water. It speaks of favoured individual plants (from dandelions to roses), children’s literature, farm gardens to white gardens, bees and butterflies.

It concludes with practical and optimistic solutions that will help to protect our land. Allowing ourselves to be drawn into the garden, instead of giving in to despair, will enable us to take part in the natural rhythms of the earth and the ancient mysteries of life. Working in our gardens will, without doubt, return health to the soil and hope to the gardener and the world.
