Gardening is a rewarding way to find peace and wholeness in a busy world, and connect back to the earth and its rhythms. In conjunction with Plot 22, a community allotment in Hove, we are delighted to offer a seasonal ‘contemplative gardening’ session. Working together in a small group, there will be time for community, and time for a mindful silence as we tend the earth. Jobs this month include harvesting, weeding, cutting down raspberry canes and planting spring bulbs. We will also offer ‘catalysts’ to help us reflect on our spiritual connectedness to creation. As part of the session we will cook food together (some of it grown on the allotment), and enjoy a story around the fire.
Plot 22 is a magical allotment space, beautifully designed with meandering paths and willow tunnels, a cosy cabin (with stained glass windows), a wood burning stove, fire circle and pizza oven. There are compost toilets too!
Soil and Soul will be facilitated by Jane Bartlett, a co-ordinator of the Brighton & Hove Centre for Spirituality.
If you would like to attend this session please RSVP to reserve your place and get further details of location. Group size is limited to 10 people. Suggested donations: £5 – £7 towards the work of Plot 22.
