1. What are you growing in your quarantine garden?
My quarantine garden is currently growing thyme, sage, 2 kinds of mint, green onion, chives, and oregano. I also have my rose bush (tending it helps me connect to my wild feminine nature) and 2 olive trees (because we all need a symbol of peace) one inside my home and one at the entrance.
2. What's one change you want to see in the world this year?
3. What's your favorite poem about the Earth?
So on this day let us bow with reverence,
As grateful children should,
And respect our Mother Nature,
Pledging ourselves to Mother Liberty's light,
That the children of the mothers beside us
Can have a future which shines bright.
- Yogi Bhajan
