Your Mind is A Garden

Your thoughts are the seeds.

You can grow flowers or

You can grow Weeds

 

Bring your headphones or listen to the symphony of nature and get into the groove. We will have garden gloves and the tools you'll need to get the job done.

 

The session is 1 hour long, however feel free (and I emphatically encourage you) to stay longer, if it feels right.

 

During this session, you will meet with the founder of DECA, Hawa Lassanah at the DECA City Farm plot at the time you designate, and together, we will get our hands in the dirt, working to bring #foodjustice to all. Come alone or bring a friend, bring the family, co-workers alike!

Sweeping clean

the murky bed

of the valley river,

it washes all out into

the shining waves beyond

- Saigyō, Shingon Poet

 

Although the water is nourishment, to carry it is the work.This is why it has its own category.

 

Participants must be able to lift 25-40lbs (3-5 gallons of water) without assistance or injury. Water is heavy! But oh what a blessing it is!

 

During this session, you will meet with founder of DECA, Hawa Lassanah at the DECA City Farm plot at the designated time, and receive guidance on where and how to fill up various buckets and barrels in order to fill our barrel-based irrigation systems, as well as manual watering if necessary, and doing the work to bring #foodjustice to all. Come alone or bring a friend, bring the family, co-workers alike!
