“A SACRED PLACE” IS A 10 ACRE PARCEL OF LAND DEDICATED TO NURTURING AND NOURISHING NATURE
AND PROVIDING A PLACE FOR INDIVIDUALS TO BE NURTURED AND NOURISHED BY NATURE’S BEAUTY.
A unique parcel of land that has been developed as a Sacred Place. Eventually, this place of natural deep silence, exquisite beauty, and special cultivation, will be opened for others to visit. Here are a few photos. (The Creation Prayer Garden) sits on this parcel of land)
Walking the grounds provides so many individual views of nature.
Vegetable garden and some of the fruit trees.
Cultivating the vegetable/herb garden
seems to connect with those collective memories
of thousands of years of humans’ doing the same.
After planting and tending the vegetable plants,
to watch them produce nutritional food is truly
amazing. From a seed comes pounds of vegetables.
Truly an awesome experience that brings such
appreciation of what nature can provide when
we protect, nurture, and tend it.
And, a life cycle is kept by using a worm factory
that gets unused fruits and vegetables. Then worms
convert these into worm juice and amazing compost,
wonderfully nourishing the plants; and,
the fruits and vegetables then nourish we humans.
Unused produce is then given to the worms, and
the cycle continues.
Besides the garden adding to the interconnectedness with nature, providing safe habitat and filling in when food sources are scarce are the “Red Umbrella feeding stations.”
Prayer for all life, and especially human life — we who have so much potential to nurture all life — has a place. The “Stream of Living/nourishing Waters.” Large to small river rock with blue gems create a stream effect. The sign at the beginning of the stream reads: “Living Waters Stream Through the Harshness of Life, Revitalizing the Soul.”
