Planting A Seed

(Crea from Peaceful Plate choosing wisely)

Tell me what does it take to plant a seed, Love sweat tears, Hope passion creativity? Or maybe a littlle bit of everything. Nature seems to be out of contrrol. But maybe shes not. Maybe shes right on course.

These last few days Ive experienced Permaculture gardening. Diving in head first. Tell me when you've planted a seed. Was it a tomato, watermelon, a seed of hate or a seed of love? We all plant seeds everyday some are more aware of this then others. Whether we choose to water those seeds is a very important task. I would love to know your thoughts on whats seeds you've have been trying to water lately. The seed in my life right now is of community.

(Gulfport Growing Greener )

When I paid a visit to the Studio@620. An Listened To Ihasha Horn speak. He spoke very fluently on the word community. He also told us about the importance on the power of words. I believe he is watering the seeds of knowledge and wisdom in us. Being in that space of art. And listing to the word of unity. You see how art is an important seed to water.

So where I'm I taking you with this? Its really seeing the connection of art and gardening that gets mixed together to form something beautiful called Permacultre. The word 'permaculture' was coined by Bill Mollison and David Holmgren during the 1970s, as a contraction of permanent(sustainable) and agriculture.

If you read the latest article on the New York Times. They well let you know the this movement came from the underground Like all good seeds do. But once that seed breaks the ground it needs some care and that's where we come in. Being in the community is a vital part of watering those seeds.

I hope you choose wisely. Because when new roots start to grow. You must be sure you want to handle that weed or that beautiful flower that springs from it. To reconnect with our food and our nature is a transition. But it takes patience and pacing. To accomplish your dreams takes vision and clarity. To water seeds takes time and effort. Remember this when your picking which seeds to grow.

This seed that I have planted here will blossom into more knowledge of the happenings of Permaculture in St. Petersburg. If you have any questions are comments leave me a message.
