ECO–CULTURE FARMING and HARMONIOUS DEVELOPMENT LECTURE
This is a two hour walk about with many fun distractions. Ample opportunity is given to ask about and focus on subjects of personal interest. We begin discussing how every garden activity is a yoga and how the same activity can make us stronger or weaker. This concept applies to the rest of our relationships with nature, which can be harmful or beneficial. Our role in recycling and being recycled, as a critical pert of a micro eco system is presented as the key to healing the planet and concurrently, our selves.
