The Slow Decay Of Civilization

Made New

By a gardener and artist.

Down by the river and on the wrong side of the tracks, the power of gardening to turn what was abandoned and decrepit into beauty and purpose is on display.

A garden holds power to transform souls.

A tapestry of vegetation connects the man made to the divinely created.

And offers a chance for us to contemplate our place in that creation.

Come to Asheville and leave inspired to transform your world with gardens.

It's a shame that more people don't understand what gardening can do. I think it's a connection that all should see.
