A garden is the cultivation of human intent…. Through the practice of cultivation we can reclaim the art of living in genuine grace and balance – individually and collectively. By practicing inner and outer cultivation, we are capable of regenerating well-being and abundance everywhere on this planet. Inner cultivation is self-awareness and refinement; outward cultivation is gardening and stewardship of human and natural communities. Focusing on these ongoing practices – using the garden as a model – we provide a template anyone can apply and use to grow gardens of all kinds everywhere. Local Harmony both promotes this perspective and demonstrates it in action.
