Instructor, artist, and neighbor Patti VanBrederode shared with us the many aspects of Nature/Garden Journaling. Garden Journaling tends to be more exact, notes on when you planted or harvested certain crops. It might include empty seed packets, and plant labels Nature journaling is more personalized and covers feelings, inspirations as well as leaves or feathers. It might include also wildlife sightings and can certainly include all the information you would put in a garden journal as well. Patti shared her journal with us which includes dreams for her garden and her family. She was encouraging in having us journal to value our thoughts, connect with the Earth, be inspired by what we notice and much more.Patti urged us to journal in anything or on anything a book, index cards, what ever. The important part is to start! No time like the present!
