Is world peace just a pipe dream? It may seem like it is in every corner of the globe… except where there’s a garden.
Because of seed companies, like Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds, where owners, Jere and Emilee Gettle travel the world, collecting seeds from over 70 countries, and offering “the most diverse collection of edibles on the planet”, a garden is the one place on earth where world peace can not only exist, but thrive!
In my garden, lettuce and cucumbers from Israel…
happily share precious soil with watermelons from Iraq.
Eggplant from Italy and Asia…
proudly co-mingle with tomatoes from Greece and the good ol’ US of A.
Squash and melons from France…
are content to co-habitate with kale that hails from Portugal,
and broccoli that has roots in Italy.
Ethnicity, religious, political, and world viewpoints don’t matter in a garden. Border encroachments are readily forgiven, and jockeying for positions of great power and wealth are absolutely unheard of .
A garden is such a happy, beautiful, and peaceful place. Yes, “There is peace in the garden. Peace and results”, says Ruth Stout.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if the whole world was at peace
just as it is
in my garden?
