"The of my childhood is where I shared the world of nature with my grandmother. She knew that the surest way to destroy the enthusiasm of a young gardener was to dictate a steady regimen of rules and routine. Instead, we greeted each day as an adventure and learned to look for and expect miracles."  
— Sharon Lovejoy
