Gardens play a role in the process of changing the indiviual lifestyle towards more awarness of being connected to the earth and all its beings and in the transition of human societies to more life-friendlyness.


Little gardenbeds on window shelfs and balconies, housegardens, communitygardens, intercultural gardens, healing gardens...there are many forms. I invite you to share your experiences with gardening, the intimate relationship with fruits and vegetables you experienced, experiences of community gardening, feelings of oneness in gardens, your gardens photos, garden tips and links to interesting projects or films... all that you like to share and that might encourage others is very welcome :-)


I started with adding a video on foodforests and putting some photos of our communitygarden on my page.


Feel welcome to follow !

Graham Cole demonstrates how you can feed your family on your allotment and garden using vegetable compost and green manures to obtain good crops of high nutritional value. No poisons or artificial fertilisers are used. This method is the kindest to the environment and all Earth's creatures.

Presenter Graham Cole is head gardener at Holywell House, Hampshire. Graham has 20 years experience growing crops stockfree organically, sustainably and ethically.

Produced by David Graham. Made with a grant from The Movement for Compassionate Living.

Left to myself, I'd want NOT to involve my brief life in the fray of human conflict.  My approach has long been that I didn't need to love individual animals; restraint and ethically principled living helped me minimize the harm I caused others and to approach asymptotically a life of of noninjury - ahimsa.  Overly philosophical or not, I found my solace in several sources: classical music, as Aristotle urged; philosophy, as Schopenhauer urged; reflecting on the ocean as bounding our land-based existence, as Protestant neo-orthodox theologians like Tillich and Bonhoeffer discovered and noted in their writings; and plants - both edible and non-edible.  I've long been intrigued by (a) the very FACT of botanical growth, as the early Greek hylozoists and even modern Germans have tried to bend into a cosmic principle; and (b) the marvel of personhood which we find broadly distributed throughout animate life, a very natural foundation for our movement, as symbolized differently in the world's many wisdom traditions, secular and religious.
