Vegetable Gardens and Seasonal Living
The world is as messy as an abandoned garden these days. People of heart and purpose are looking for ways to create positive change that cultivates peace and wellness. Not just peace and wellness out there, but in our own souls and minds.
The singular most effective practice that I have found to heal personally from a fast-paced and off-kilter world is to build, grow, and maintain vegetable gardens. Don’t get me wrong, I love flower gardens and have several myself, but I find growing my own food is a multi-purpose tool for change. This one seasonal living practice creates physical and emotional wellness for the gardener.
Your vegetable garden also changes the world!
Using this monthly organic garden checklist to create beautiful vegetables for your family and friends changes the planet for the better.
How, you ask?
- Gardening is enjoyable, family-friendly, and community-enhancing.
- Home gardens provide reliable food security for local communities and individual households. Your kitchen is an extension of your garden, each reliant upon the other for truly sustainable practices.
- Backyard gardens are a significant resource for natural carbon sequestration, effective air cleaners, and reduced soil erosion.
- Gardening is the perfect activity for physical fitness and spiritual grounding. It’s an essential practice for holistic wellness making you better prepared to be there for family, friends, and neighbors in need.
Seasonal living is about creating a lifestyle grounded in the rhythms of nature’s time. This lifestyle heals the individual while making a meaningful impact on the greater world. Lorrie Season is dedicated to building a movement around this lifestyle – one garden at a time, one meal at a time, one healthy grounded person at a time.
How I know…
I was an activist in a major east coast city from 1992 to 2007. During those years, I organized in inner-city neighborhoods around issues of violence, poverty, commercial revitalization, and residential neighborhood development. I began that work with naivete and enthusiasm.
25 years later, around 2008, I was exhausted and riddled with a pervasive sense of hopelessness. Despite decades of hard work in a thriving community of change agents, the world had decidedly not become a better place.
To heal, I took a two-pronged approach to create personal change. I studied ecopsychology (a field of inquiry dedicated to exploring the healing potential of the places where culture and nature merge) at Naropa University (a Buddhist university in Boulder, CO), and I moved from the inner city to a 5-acre micro-farm with my husband Bob, who is also a lifelong activist.
It took 10 years, but I have healed. This online business called Lorrie Season is my gift to the world I love so much, the world I want to heal as she healed me. It is my gift to her people, too. Culture, nature, and personal wellness practices merge in the vegetable garden, which is a potent cocktail for healing.
Practical tools have emerged from this matrix. You’ll find plenty of free resources to help you garden, create meals, preserve foods, and create personal wellness on the website.
So, join us by downloading the Monthly Garden Tasklist eBook and building the organic vegetable garden of your dreams.
