My Photo
Name: Julie A Carda

After studying dance in Europe, Julie returned to the United States and graduated from Creighton University. With a desire to expand her knowledge of the arts and spirituality, she graduated from St. John’s University in Collegeville with a Masters in Theology and Liturgical Studies. Over the past twenty years, she has taught high school and college courses, and facilitated workshops on the healing arts while occasionally writing for academic periodicals. Her quest to acknowledge world religions and the desire to expose the similarities of love and peaceful living, led her to travel, live, and study with shaman practitioners, herbal healers, Native American medicine women, Buddhist priests and other earth-based spiritual teachers. Through these experiences and experiences with global metaphysical teachings, she learned to honor the eternal Source of love in all people. Besides writing fiction, Julie is co-creating a Space of Love through advocacy for Kin Domains.

Garden Magic

For those of you who have been following along the past few months, you'll remember when I discussed the lasagna garden technique and showed pictures of each phase. If you weren't able to read the posts back in March, then what you see here to the right is the before picture. With elbow grease and a co-creating boost from nature the result is the after picture posted below.

It is only July 1st and already everything is lush.
The sudden heat has boosted growth to phenomenal rates. Each day something new makes it to the dinner table. I wonder if I'll be replanting in late July or early August to get some second harvests before the frost.

When I look at the variation in these photos I see magic. Garden magic. No wonder I get excited when I plant that first seed of the season!
