From the Author:


"I believe from the depths of my heart that gardening can be one of the most profound ways to unearth the creative spirit buried within every one of us. It doesn't matter whether you have a twenty-acre plot of land or a fire escape in the back of a city apartment ; once you unleash this creative energy, you will be amazed at what happens in all areas of your life. You will begin to see how living creatively opens up new vistas in your imagination and new windows of opportunity in your life. You will know beyond a shadow of a doubt that once you discover your authentic, creative nature, you can create absolutely anything you dare to in and of your life."
