The Art of Mindful Gardening

£8.99 inc. VAT

Ark Redwood is Head Gardener of Chalice Well. In Ark’s words:

‘The art of being mindful is simply really. It lies in the practice of being in the present moment, and attempting to hold that attention to whatever you are doing, gently bringing the mind back to the present moment whenever it starts to wonder (which it inevitably does!).

‘So simple, and yet it can take a lifetime, if not several lifetimes, to truly master. I, for one, certainly cannot claim to be anything but a novice in its application. Over the years I have been attempting to apply the practice of mindfulness to my own particular profession, which is that of gardener; and it is the aim of this book to share some of the insights one may gain from applying them to this venerable craft of horticulture.

‘One thing this book is not is a gardening textbook. There are already countless volumes outlining the various and varied techniques necessary to be a successful gardener. The role of this particular book lies in suggesting ways to enhance your present moment awareness of whatever task you are engaged in, even the most seemingly mundane. I will also attempt to explain, in as simple terms as possible, the botanical reason that we do what we do in the garden.’
