The Exquisite Garden Project

 "if you want to build a ship, don't drum up people to gather wood, divide the work, and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea..."

Antoine de Saint-Exupery, from the Little Prince

The Nest Survives!

Here is a picture of Gardener Joe B. and Mike, who keeps a watchful eye on all the goings on at Linden Street and Campovida, site of our NEST project. Rumor has it that Mike likes to carve wood...Joe gave him some carving tools and wood...of course with ulterior motives...Mike will surely be asked to join the Gardeners next Bay Area event!

The responses to our NEST project were many and varied, here is one of our favorites, validating our view that when the Exquisite Gardeners get to work , magic happens...

I just stumbled upon the nest in West Oakland on Linden Street. I cannot express what it was that I felt walking through it. I think the work that has been done is beyond words and extremely incredible. It touches on something much different than regular interaction with an object or site that I often have. Thank you.
