Cultivating Community Garden

A few sunny days and it already smells like spring! It’s got me dreaming of when I managed the Cultivating Community Garden at the University of Michigan, and thinking about what to plant this year in my own garden.

Mayan Ball Court

Restored and kept in pristine conditions, this ball court at Quirigua, Guatemala constantly has the jungle creeping back towards it. I found a few ripe avocado and mango trees just behind the structures in the background, and happily made a fresh snack from the fruit that had fallen.

Through the elements

Out of torments,
Storms form the north,
Rains from the south,
You seemed to grow
Declining to recognize
The lack of warmth
All along promising to yourself
That one day the sun would come
