The Gardener Says: Quips, Quotes, and Words of Wisdom

Princeton Architectural Press
Forthcoming 2019

The Gardener Says invites readers to a festive garden party where an array of guests from Gertrude Jekyll and Henry David Thoreau to Michelle Obama and Michael Pollan share their insights, quips, and words of inspiration. Whether the reveries of poets or the theories of landscape designers, these quotes highlight the joys and challenges of gardening— the exhaustion at the end of a long day’s work, the satisfaction of seeing a flower blossom, the peace and happiness of hours spent in quiet contemplation. A delightful pastime, a potent tool for ecological and social transformation, and a crucial reminder of our place in nature, gardening is, in the words of Mirabel Osler, the one occupation where “if you were to creep up behind someone at their work, you would find them smiling.”

"This is a journey to the heart by way of the four elements: earth, fire, water and air. . . . A chiropractic readjustment and a crash-course in quantum physics. What a reminder that we humans are all ‘swinging doors,’ constantly connecting our alchemical energies to each other and to our world. . . . This poet is howling at the crossroads.”
—Marielle Grenade-Willis
