By: Ariana Morin
Jan. 4, 2012 - PRLog -- Join us for a gathering on the art of urban gardening and get inspired to grow where you are - literally and figuratively!

Eugene will discuss non-dogmatic philosophy about meditations on nature, the concept of karma and how we can get back in touch with the seasons, cycles of the moon and our own center through gardening.  Learn how the garden encourages a cleaner diet, sharing & giving and helps us to reconnect to our center. Eugene will inspire you with both ideas and practical information to begin connecting growing food with your health and wellness. Sow some gardening karma – bring some cuttings from your garden to share with the group!  

Snacks will be provided.

Pre-registration strongly recommended. To register visit

Fee: $15 per person, $10 for groups of 2 or more.  We encourage you to bring a friend!
