Now a river flowed out of Eden to water the garden; and from there it divided and became four rivers. (Genesis 2:10)
Just as important than all the utility of gardening:
* Reducing dependence on a corrupt food system
* Restoring & regenerating the local ecology
* Inspiring personal relationship with the natural world
Growing food is perhaps the last unifying language we have across all categories that divide us. Gardening provides common ground and reminds us of our shared heritage.
Refuse to let this broken world divide us!
