Happy Easter!

Updated: Mar 31

Happy Easter! On this Easter Sunday the theme is rebirth! Spring is in full swing and there is no stopping it now... Birds are singing, foraging, and gathering nesting material, insects are emerging, and flowers are beginning to bloom.


The ancient Pagan goddess Eostere was celebrated at this time as the world around us is reborn. The rising sun to the East, plants emerging from their slumber, and fertility returning to the land signified Spring was here to our ancestors who relied so heavily on the land and nature's bounty. Because of it's Pagan origins, Easter is still dictated by the phase of the moon and not by a calendar, unlike most other Holidays.


Although we are now in the Anthropocene, we have not come so far from our Pagan roots. As our gardens are reborn, think of ways for improvement. How can this space create more life? How can it support as many creatures as possible? The cold and dark of winter is finally being met with with warmth as light returns to the North, and Nature reminds us once again of the endless rebirth. Get lost this Spring, and remember to grow, both in your garden and in your life.
