In my own view, gardening is not just planting food alone; it is about how I reconnect my self to other precious lives existing in my natural world by giving my energy back to earth. And for me, community gardening is about how we maintain and nurture a healthy relationship with other people. It is an important alternative to solve the problems we are facing such as famine, malnutrition, and even food poisoning. By doing this positive action, we can put an end to our consumption to expensive and unsustainable food available in the supermarket or fast food chains that’s heavily laden with harmful pesticides, antibiotics, artificial flavorings and preservatives.
As people, our role on this planet is to coexist with other sacred earthly beings and experience the wholeness of nature and life. As an organization, the goal of BHSG is to provide an alternative that promotes sharing and cooperation and to educate others about the importance of community gardening especially in an organic way. In the near future, we will share our time and skills to other people so that they can also start growing food for their survival. To plant food for a healthy consumption, to cook the harvest of our patience and persistence, to share it to other people in need (involved or not involved in this project), is to bring ourselves back to earth. - By Life
