Labyrinth Planting Phase 1: April 30, 10 AM

Hi everyone,

Just went by Children’s Village today to see the growing miracles. We’re going to gather to plant them in the Roots & Wings Labyrinth on Saturday, April 30, at 10 AM. Come!

We’ll be planting the labyrinth in phases. Broccoli, beans, snap peas, early butternut squash, tricolor zucchini, gold beet, and wachchichu flour corn will be planted directly from seed later this spring.

A lurking fear… how will we keep the deer away from our small and tender plants, perfect for chomping?

spirit in the garden

Can you feel May right around the corner now that spring has FINALLY sprung? I sure can. And that means our next Roots & Wings workshop is fast approaching as well. 
Minnie Kansman

Next up will be a day of deep gardening and wisdom sharing with the delightful Minnie Kansman from Lowell, Michigan, author of Spirit Gardens: Rekindling our Nature Connection.

I met Minnie back in 2003 at a feng shui conference. Before that time I had known her only in cyberspace from a Sacred Space practitioners egroup which we both belonged to. I remember thinking, “I hope she is as delightful in person as she seems in her posts.” And that she was! 

Little did I know then that we would go on to have many amazing adventures together over the course of the next eight years. I have journeyed to her home on two different occasions to attend certification classes in both feng shui and space clearing, spending time on her land immersed in the incredible landscapes she has co-created with Nature. 

We’ve also made hand drums, attended symposiums and retreats, swapped stories and walked miles in Central Park on a 95 degree day in August. No matter the setting, the season or the weather, time with Minnie is always a time of rich, delightful and Spirit filled sharing.

Minnie’s presentations will be held at South Church on Saturday, May 14 and divided into two segments. First up will be Rekindling Our Nature Connection in the morning from 10 to 12:30. Then another delicious lunch together. Then the afternoon event, Feng Shui in the Garden from 1:30 to 4 pm. Please note that you may choose to attend only one of these workshops if scheduling is an issue however lunch is provided only for those who attend the full day.
