When we found out we were moving into a space with a backyard, we knew we had to put in a garden. Learning to live in touch with nature is a part of our mission to create positive change in our world. Many of us have lost connection with the joys of being outside, but we find that spending time among plants and the living communities they support helps us to remember the simplicity of life within the chaos we create.
We ended up with a great big pile of dirt that was left over from when they put in the parking lot up front, and we decided it was the perfect place to start our butterfly garden. Here are a few pictures of the garden as we planted it last weekend.
Notice the spiral?
It's only halfway done, but we can't wait for the plants to fill in and welcome our clients and friends with a place to enjoy the natural world amidst the chaos of our bustling city.
