The Attractive Force of Gardening
We are reinvigorated through gardening, and through our ongoing improvements our gardens begin to produce. The garden invites us in many ways: to get physical exercise through land improvement practices; to take our time and pace ourselves; to become filled with the privilege to do joyful work — the attractive force of the domestic garden.
The children see their gardens as a sign of love, work and care. It tells others that they focus on this place with their own physical efforts. Its improvement tells something about their own personal endeavors to stay healthy.
