Why We Garden

According to a reviewer for Booklist, Jim Nollman's view of gardening is spiritual, expressing an abiding concern for the natural order of things and discomfort with the philosophy that seeks to control nature in order to achieve an aesthetic landscape. In this work, Nollman generously shares his observations on 'plant personalities' and discusses unorthodox types of gardens with views that are as entertaining as they are instructive. Kirkus Reviews noted that Nollman has offered provocative reflections on the need to create a sense of place, 'a bit of paradise within an imperfect world'. The biocentric approach reflected here is about a fundamental connection with nature that transforms the act of gardening into an adventure filled with lessons great and small. The author advocates for gardens as the space in which a genuine healing relationship between person and place can be formed.
