"When we garden, we may be escaping into a
world we've created with care and labour and seeds
and water and vision, but we are also participating
in, and connecting with, something beyond ourselves;
we are nurturing life." So maintains Lorraine

gardening and its effect on every aspect of our
world. A Penquin Book.
