The greatest thing about class and being in the garden is that participants become immersed in the work we do outside. We are only reminded of where we are when the Correctional Officer comes out to the garden and counts the men. With movement on my mind and with the wind in our faces we observed that gardens are not just to be medicinal, ornamental, fragrant and productive but also to offer movement with tall lithe grasses,
arching heavy blossoms,
swaying flighty flowers,
bending and flexible and resilient.
All good qualities we can aspire to. It reminds me that nature wants us to be flexible and graceful and to have “movement”.
