You are invited to honor her energetic efforts to make this world a more beautiful place. And indeed she has. The project nearest to her heart has been the transformation over the past eight years of Throop Church's weedy yard into a natural wonderland of native plants, orchard, habitat, beauty and a place of respite in a busy world.
She spread beauty with her artistic talents, with gardens designed with palettes of native plants, and with her compassion for all living things.
Ever a teacher, she helped us all learn and grow. I have learned more deeply about community and how essential it is to the human family to network for resilience in tough times. I have learned how gardening draws us in, how earth meditation can connect and ground us, how music and celebration can be vehicles to bond us together.
Thank you, January. We miss your big heart, your wisdom and your ready laughter.
