Garden Psychology: An Excerpt from Slow Gardening
Posted By jmccharen On April 17, 2012 @ 5:00 am In Garden & Agriculture | Comments Disabled
 Felder Rushing is a tenth-generation American gardener, raised into his teen years under the apprenticeship of a horticulturist great-grandmother who grew flowers, vegetables, herbs, and fruits without a hose or pesticides, and a garden club grandmother who garnered hundreds of blue ribbons for her plant breeding and displays.
Felder’s new book,  Slow Gardening: A No-Stress Philosophy for All Senses and Seasons, was inspired by Slow Food, an international movement that encourages a tempo of life more in keeping with natural systems, while honoring local food sources and cultures. In much the same way, a slow-gardening approach can help us ease up on the plant, feed, and weed accelerator and take the time to become more laid back and thoughtful in our gardening habits and styles.
Learn more about Slow Gardening in this excerpt, below. The book is available for pre-order now, and will ship in mid-June.
