The PLOT garden provides opportunities to engage and appreciate the four elements of Water/Earth/Air/Fire. These elements are essential for growing food and creating art. The vegetables, herbs and flowers that provide inspiration and food for thought are captured in beautiful cyanotypes.
The Newton Medicine Wheel Travels
The PLOT was invited to bring the Medicine Wheel to the Surrey Fusion Festival, BC’s largest free multi-cultural celebration, showcasing and celebrating the cultural diversity of Surrey
The PLOT Sharing Garden and Newton Medicine Wheel Team created a temporary Medicine Wheel and Grandma Amy used it as a beautiful teaching tool.
Walking a Labyrinth is an ancient custom for Prayer, Meditation and Clarity.
It is a sacred healing space designed to return you to your centre, to your deepest heart, then back out into the world.
The building of this Heart is the story of one woman’s healing path and recovery from trauma. It is about life affirming acts of reclamation and regeneration. It shows how the restorative work of the individual can become that which unifies and heals not only the Newton community but also all community.
Amazing day at the PLOT today! Sunbow appeared in the sky as we laid out the the lines for the soon to be “Heart of Newton Labyrinth”. Newcomer Dory sheared all our sod benches with loving zen care, Sherree Lee sharpened and cleaned tools, Giselle and Zena prepared branches for painting for medicine wheel pots, scarlet runners were planted, much of the soil was moved, and a beautiful bouquet of PLOT radishes was presented! AND FIRST Salad from our own garden greens For PLOT Pot Luck!!! Oh, and the sun was shining!!!
