“. . . watch with me as a grand and beautiful picture unfolds, of the interconnectedness of all things.” 

No endeavor engages so deeply, so personally with nature as farming, whether on a thousand acres or in the gardener’s window box. When farmers delve into nature’s mysteries they follow in the footsteps of the myriad curious natural scientists who came before.

Join Athena (Teena) Tainio on a journey that illuminates the diverse wonders of the building blocks of life and gain a new appreciation for the inspiring and powerful dynamics of life on our planet, our farms, Gaia. In this deeply personal story of discovery, the author poetically relates her own understanding of Gaia, a name drawn from Greek mythology for the personification of the Earth, the ancestral mother of all life: the primal Mother Earth goddess.
