Beautiful Words with which to Garden and Live!


The Gardener’s Creed: Written by Mrs. John Boyd, VFGC, Inc.


Help us, O Lord, to grasp the meaning of happy

growing things, the mystery of opening bud and floating

seed, that we may weave it into the tissue of our faith in life eternal.


Give us wisdom to cultivate our minds as diligently as we nurture

tender seedlings, and patience to weed out envy and malice as we uproot troublesome weeds.


Teach us to seek steady root growth rather than a fleeting culture, and to cultivate those traits which brighten under adversity with the perennial loveliness of hardy borders.Thank God for gardens and their message, today and always.  Amen.
