Non-violent gardening

We live in a world that has practiced violence for generations -- violence to other creatures, violence to the planet, violence to ourselves.  Yet in my garden, where I have nurtured a healthy soil-plant community, I see a model of a highly successful, non-violent system where I participate in gentle biological diplomacy rather than war.  The garden has more to teach us than just how to grow food.
