HaGan HaNadiv, due out in November, is Ramat Hanadiv's newest book: a delightful, creative horticultural journey via 32 tempting activities for gardeners. For children and helping adults -- parents, teachers, counselors -- and anyone who'd just like to add a special flourish to a balcony or back-yard garden, there is an assortment here of well-illustrated gardening projects with a subtle accent on recycling and environmental awareness. Teachers and horticultural therapists in particular will appreciate the book's detailed 'how-to' instructions and illuminating insights, many of them derived from the everyday work in the enabling gardens of Ramat Hanadiv. But above all else, HaGan HaNadiv invites every reader into an experiential, sensual and unmediated encounter between people, plants, and the earth that nourishes them.
