Thoughtful Thursday: True Listening

The art of true listening is when someone gives another their undivided attention. What a gift! The other can also be the land, Earth, Nature. In an Agricultural Testament (1940), Sir Albert Howard reminds us that:

If you want to know how to use the land, look at the way Nature uses land. Look at how Nature does her farming.

When we tap into the ‘genius of a place’ (Wendell Berry), we are guided. Enabling this guidance is what makes food and farming sacred. Listen to the land – touch the soil!
