They exemplify how life is one constant interaction with everything there is, was and will be in all directions. Without trying to be too cryptic, is it possible that the effects of the man-made constructions, the blocking and re-directing, the poisoning and the plastic abuse of the rivers have manifested into human consciousness?

Herbal gardens offer sanctuary for pollinators, people and elemental beings. Flowering plants and trees, hedgerows and pathways, arbors and benches, altars and bells add magical dimensions into a healing garden. A diversity of plants, blooming throughout the gardening season encourages a diversity of pollinators and birds. Hedgerows and bells are friends to Elemental beings. The biodynamic approach we use at Avena Botanical gardens helps create a sacred environment for all beings that enter the gardens.
