Synopsis

A rare look at the integral role a garden plays in the life of a monastery. Here, gardening is not undertaken for decorative purposes alone. Instead, fruits and vegetable flavour meals, and carefully tended refuges are the perfect spot to pray. Throughout the book, members of different orders discuss the divine purpose of gardening and its symbolic significance in Christian faiths.
