Agriculture has been called the "mother of all crafts;" at prov.en.der we take that seriously--listening not only with Mason and her admired poetic scientist, Henri Fabre, but with those of our day, people like Wendell Berry, Sir Ken Robinson, Fritjof Capra, David Orr and Alice Waters, for a more organic metaphor to guide our educational efforts.
Like farmers repairing and sharpening our tools after the annual harvest is in, we keep this gathering time to look closely, think deeply, and consider ideas as they unfold through the presentations and conversations of l'HaRMaS -- ground that looks fallow but upon close inspection is rife with life. We recognize Mason's education anew as a careful cultivation that swells to a true and satisfying harvest. We notice again its roots run deep, it has great beauty, and it cultivates wonder. Consider being our guest as we draw together to hone our craft and celebrate a festival to the richness of the provender.
