Wendy Johnson is a Zen Buddhist meditation teacher and pioneer, leader and head gardener for San Francisco’s Green Gulch Farm Center (located in Marin County, northern California), gardens that grew out of fields that “curve like an enormous green dragon between the hills and the ocean”. In this delightful book she shares her experiences and profound knowledge in a manner that leaves one, in the words of Joanna Macy; “…shaken into a fuller, gladder life.”
A distillation of her life and work, “Fundamental work that permeates your entire life. It demands your energy and heart, and it gives you back great treasures as well. Like a fortified sense of humor, an appreciation for paradox, and a huge harvest of Dinosaur Kale and tiny red Potatoes.”
