I can’t think of another person who tends to her garden with such marked passion as does Frances Cleveland from FrogWorks. Witnessing her cultivate the final harvest before winter sets in was a true inspiration. I attended her winter workshop, during which she asked her participants to walk in the garden and honor the plants with an offering of marigold to show gratitude before taking what we were to put to use. Frances’ connection to the earth and plants which she harvests are not separate ~ they are deeply connected. Her accrued wisdom of plants is unsurpassed. Throughout the workshop, there is focus on understanding that most plants, in stores, or those that you grow, nurture us with important medicine. The subject of today’s workshop was on plant based herbal tonics and essential oils to help sustain us through the winter months.
The garden speaks: “life is evolving”.
