The best fertilizer is the footstep of the farmer.
from ancient wisdom
"Allow me to give you another insight. The Aquarian impulses are already seated within the planet. Visualize, if you will, the planet as a container of these impulses: Energy held beneath the Earth's surface. This energy is seated within the very soul of the planet, seated within its heart. It is there to be released and integrated into all levels of life on the planet. Now, picture one small, co-creative garden on the planet's surface. See it as a window into the interior of the planet, into its soul. As the gardener works to align this garden to the new dynamics, watch the window open and the energy contained within the core of the planet gently gravitate to and release through the window. Feel the sense of relief and freedom within the Earth's core as the energy moves outward and up. And watch the actions and the form living on the Earth's surface suddenly shift to reflect the impact of the heart energy which has now surfaced."
"That which exists on the surface has begun to connect to and integrate with the heart and soul of the planet, which, in turn, is fully aligned with the heart and soul force of the universe. As with the experience the human receives when he consciously shifts his perceptions in such a way that the heart energy he holds deep within is suddenly released and allowed to surface, so, too, will Earth as each person opens the window through the framework of the co-creative garden to the heart and soul energy of the planet."
"It is not enough to move about the planet in a state of benevolent love for it. Human state alone will not create the passageways through which the heart energy of the planet is allowed to release. It must be accomplished through the state of the human mind, his consciousness, combined with parallel and appropriate action. Once released, this heart energy from the planet will permeate all living reality upon its surface and support the evolutionary process of the planet and its inhabitants in tandem movement with the universe into the Aquarian era."
"I fully understand that I am aligning deep planetary change and universal movement with the actions of one gardener tending one small garden. This is precisely what I mean to do. One need not wait for group consensus in such matters. One need only move forward, sound the note for change, and follow that intonation with parallel action. Each gardener, in the role of the Knower, shall hold the seed to his heart and shall plant this seed in the earth. The fruit of this plant shall be the winged and shafted Sun above his head, and a new kingdom shall be grounded on Earth. This I can promise you. This is what awaits you."

"The ultimate goal of farming is not the growing of crops but the cultivation and perfection of human beings."
– Masanobu Fukuoka
"If we can take care of the land, the land will take care of us."
– Dick Thompson
"We do not inherit the land, we borrow it from our children."
"God Almighty first planted a garden. And indeed it is the purest of human pleasures."
– Francis Bacon
"There is one rule in the garden that is above all others. You must give to Nature more than you take. Obey it, and the Earth will provide you in glorious abundance."
– Alan Chadwick
"The first thing you notice when you go organic is that the song birds and ladybugs return."
"The seed of God is in us.
Given an intelligent and hard-working farmer,
it will thrive and grow up to God, whose seed it is;
and accordingly its fruits will be God-nature.
Pear seeds grow into pear trees,
nut seeds into nut trees,
and God seed into God."
– Meister Eckhart
"The living are soft and yielding; the dead are rigid and stiff. Living plants are flexible and tender; the dead are brittle and dry."
