(A huge shout out to my my Sister, April, who invited me!)
Before I left home, I grabbed my camera, praying I will be inspired.
Inspired, I was! The very essence of inspiration was in the air. To start things off, the weather was simply beautiful.
And to tie into the spring feeling, there were so many people happy and eager to talk to you about their careers and how much gardening meant to them. I met gardeners, innovators, teachers, students, architects, historians, cooks, two happy babies, musicians, photographers, and to top things off I ran into Gustimo’s co-founder, Martina Kenworthy, who embarked on a new career with Slow Foods.
The love for healthy food brought us all together.
In the middle of the day I found myself in the garden’s auditorium listening to the president of the garden, Scot Medbury. He said, being around plants and beauty really brings you to your best self and I sat there hoping I would soon join this community of people who didn’t mind soil and seeds.
