The Soil & The Gardener = The Garden

Making notes tonight in preparation for a message I get to share in the transitioning colors of Vermont next week.

Here are some….

This life finds us hovering above the soil that holds the potential for gardens of growth, lessons learned, attention to detail, awareness, and appreciation of beauty. For some reason I can’t rid my thoughts of the law of the harvest and the law of compensation these days.

You can’t separate the soil and gardener from of the garden itself. Without each other, the garden doesn’t exist.

Farmer Joe’s Like Button

The Law of the Harvest and the Law of Reciprocation…Two principles that forever change us if we allow them to have their way in our lives, relationships, and businesses.

Simply put, gardens give back where they’re given to.

While it’s never been easier to post something for anyone to see, make a statement or ruckus, or build the illusion that you’re gardening or farming, creating change in someone, connecting the unconnected dots, and making art that helps us all make sense of it all is where we – you – I – the farmers earn our pay and calloused hands.

The best thing a farmer has never had to be concerned with is the passerby watching his rows and rows of sown seeds and wondering about if that will be getting him any ‘likes’. Farmers don’t farm because it’s cute. They farm to produce. Come rain or come shine.

In the end, providing produce just may be better than providing a documentary of your lines and ways of production.

And in the beginning after the end, a nourished recipient can’t help but find a way to click the farmer’s like button.
