Why "Growing Edge?"

Hey! Life is amazing and if you aren't paying attention, it just may be passing you by. Slow down! Observe what is around you. Plant a garden. Make your own food. Create Beauty.

Welcome to our blog. We love discovering what Earth has to teach anyone willing to be on the Growing Edge of life.

Don't Miss Tending the Soul's Garden in May

May 3-4, 2013 at Rockhaven Ecozoic Center in House Springs, MO.

Tending the Soul’s Garden:

How to Thrive and Prosper While Changing the World.

Where do you begin when you care about everything?  In this working session, learn how you can both sustain your energies as a changemaker and create greater impact as you engage in the Great Work of renewing and transforming our world.


    The most critical mindset shift you MUST have to succeed as a changemaker;
    How to choose leveraged projects with the greatest potential to shift entire systems;
    How to dramatically increase your impact, leverage and reach;
    How to thrive as a changemaker, even in hostile ecosystems;
    How to manifest the New Story with grounded and engaged spirituality;

We begin by nurturing the soil: the soil of the soul and in the various gardens we tend in our lives. Soil is where life begins: and the cycle of life continues.  Infused with spirit, the archetypal soil of mother earth brings us to a new way of being, transforming our world as an outward expression of our inner journey.

What is Permaculture?

Permaculture (permanent agriculture) is an ecological design framework inspired by living systems. The ethics, root practices and principles in permaculture can be applied to the garden, the farm, and indeed any living system including human structures.
