On Planting Your Home Orchard
by Don Weaver
“It is impossible for man to evolve mentally unless s/he participates in the creation of the world. This is a very simple way to participate. Fruit trees and nut trees marry the earth and sky. They give shade and food. They are a powerful symbol. To plant a tree along a public road, that is an act of generosity. Lack of heart, lack of generosity, is the real disease in our world.” –Bernard Moitessier
I have been gratefully enjoying a growing supply of fantastic mineralized fruit in recent years, and now I find my home orchard is fully planted! So I accept a soft place under freshly-leafing chocolate persimmon to encourage you to share this inspired feeling of shared nurturance and nourishment of mind-body-spirit...and Earth!
Have you noticed the countless efforts made to experience greater health of indivisible mind-body-spirit, but too often “Earth” is divided off or forgotten and an essential unity is severed or misplaced? Please never undervalue the Soil-Earth-Health complex of beautiful relationships. Don’t we all want and truly need more beautiful relationships in our lives? Might you start on your present “homestead”? If you see any soil and receive about six or more hours of sun per day, and live south of the Arctic Circle, your chances are excellent.
