Stadtgärtnern

5 Mar

“Der Garten ist der letzte Luxus unserer Tage, denn er fordert das, was in unserer Gesellschaft am seltensten und kostbarsten geworden ist: Zeit, Zuwendung und Raum.

Er ist Stellvertreter der Natur, in dem wir Geist, Wissen und Handwerk wieder gebrauchen in sorgsamen Umgang mit der Welt in ihrem Mikrokosmos, dem Garten.”

Dieter Kienast – Die Poetik des Gartens: Über Chaos und Ordnung in der Landschaftsarchitektur (Buch)

    Thanks, Carola, wonderful quote, Synchronicity, Tomorrow I’m doing a talk “Women bloom in many ways” to open a 3-day “Women’s Innovation and Trade Fair in Cape Town. Using the garden as metaphor for self-knowledge, personal growth and diversity – valuing self and others, and togetherness, to make a beautiful garden. May sound sentimental, but it works well. The men are the trees – also coming in different size, shapes and strengths, and many also bearing flowers and fruits.
