Nature as Teacher

Our quest on this Little Farm is to ask Nature to be our Teacher. We are trying to garden and live within the balance of Natural Systems. That is a Tall Order.

Our Society has tried to live for so long outside the Laws of Nature to the Point that we have forgotten we are a part of this Great Circle of Creation. We cannot bridge that gap completely at this moment in time, nor can we bridge it as fast as we would like. But we can take it on one step at a time. And we can enjoy the Ride.

A Big Step in that Direction is to observe Nature. As a Society, we have been oblivious to Nature, so stopping in our Tracks to observe that Great Circle of Life is a very important First Step. In those observations, we consider what this means for our own Practice.
