Tend the Three Gardens

Right now, no matter where you live, you are intimately involved with three gardens: the one in your backyard (or in planters), the one in your spirit and the one that is the world. Some books describe working with one of these gardens, but only one shows you how to tend all three of them — Sacred Land by organic gardener and landscape designer Clea Danaan.

Whether you're an experienced gardener, a beginner or wouldn't even consider dipping your nails in the soil, you're going to find this book to be inspirational, easy to read and filled with information on goddesses, magical creatures, community and a positive outlook toward a sustainable future.

Begin with the Basics of Earth
Sacred Land is filled with practical suggestions on how to improve your garden through the use of natural and organic methods. The techniques are both modern and as old as time, beginning with getting to understand the nature of the soil through meditation and understanding how the soil is a vast kingdom of insects, bacteria and wise stones. It is the source from which life on land begins. Discover how the soil is sacred and how you can work with allies there ranging from earthworms to gnomes.

How to work with the soil
Secrets of composting
Where to plant and when

In this way you'll come to truly and intuitively know the earth element. However, all of the elements are necessary for bringing forth the blessings of the goddess from the land.

Expand with the Magic of Air and Fire
Air has to do with mind, so here you'll learn the secrets of planning a garden for your area. This includes working with the weather, the planets, birds, bees, bats, butterflies and sylphs. You'll also discover how to give back to the world through the development of community gardens.

The author describes how you can reflect plant fire by living passionately through ritual, activism and personal transformation. In this section you'll learn about working with seeds and herbs from an organic and spiritual perspective. It also features a garden ritual and ten simple spells for such things as starting a new garden, beginning a new job and improving finances.

The Living Sheath of Water
Water is crucial for plants and humans alike, so this section begins by helping you learn to work with undines and naiads. You'll learn how to water effectively and what you can do to prevent waste and pollution. Included is information on natural pest control and working water magic to revitalize the life-giving water in your garden and the world.

Gardening is about making things grow. Sacred Land is a book that will guide you to help make your garden, your spirituality and the world grow in positive directions. It intermingles descriptions of well-known goddesses, such as Gaia and Demeter with those of lesser-known ones, such as Pachamama, Feng-Po and Seshat. Choose the ones you want and bring their energy into your garden and your life. It also describes "sacred sisters," women who have done impressive things for their communities or the planet, ranging from artists and psychics to herbalists and shamans. Some are well known, such as Starhawk, while others may be new to you, such as organic farmer Cheryl Rogowski or healer Sandra Ingerman. The lives of these women will inspire you to act to improve your garden, your spirituality, your life and your world.

Included are resources, books, organizations and websites to help you on your spiritual path. Supporting the call for responsibility and sustainability, Sacred Land is printed on recycled paper.

Everyone knows that brooms and witches go together. Most popular images of witches show them with pointed hats, black cats, and a broom. And while not every witch has a cat (or a funny-looking hat, for that matter), most of us own a broom. But how many of us actually use them for our magical work? When I started writing The Witch's Broom, I'll... read this article
