The entire natural world — the universe itself — embodies fractals and the principles of sacred geometry.  The murmuration of starlings, our fingerprints, honeycomb on a beehive, petals on a flower, leaves on a tree etc. all consist of a design integrity in space and time.  This rhythm and repetition is found in the consciousness of the living forest.  Be it the earliest feature of deforestation  — the cedar forest in the Epic of Gilgamesh — to our current lamentable rates, forests have been treasured by Greek philosophers like Plato to present day luminaries like Queen Elizabeth.  Across centuries and cultures, folklore and collective wisdom have been drawn from living in and with the forest.  Dark and full of foreboding to the Brothers Grimm, these same structures are elements of fantasy to storytelling such as the movie Avatar.

For the finale to our Gardens : Cultivating Beauty series, come celebrate this Edenic garden we are privileged to call home.
