Spring is here again! Spring gardening is a wonderful way to participate in life renewing itself. This wholesome activity promotes the health of both mind and body. The contemplative activities of gardening and interacting with nature at this time of the year allow us to fully experience the awakening and regeneration of spring. And not least, gardening nourishes us with fresh fruits and vegetables. Join us in this 4-session class at the O’Donohue Stanford Educational Farm while we prepare the soil and ourselves for another healthy season.

You will learn:

*how to grow spring vegetables, about crop rotation, and composting throughout the seasons.

*simple yoga stretches and ergonomics for safe physical movement in (and out of) the garden.

*how to enhance the harmonious experience of connecting with nature by practicing mindfulness in the garden.

She is a Master Composter for San Mateo County, and holds an Advanced Certificate in Ecological Horticulture from the Center for Agroecology and Sustainable Food Systems at UC Santa Cruz, and an MS in Agroecology from UW-Madison.
