Solidarity & Harmony
You’ll hear lots of talk about plants, insects, flowers, good vegetables, and good eats, plus ways to protect the environment, our health, and the health of our children. We also swap tips about great places to camp and spend time with the family, or about spectacular hiking destinations. Many of us are involved in creative arts that call for a high degree of manual dexterity. Others are into tennis, dance, or yoga—there are even some high-level athletes in the group. Conversations about travel, culture, art exhibits, and books are sure to get everyone going. The sense of harmony and fellowship among team members is palpable and contributes to a positive and exciting work environment.
To top it all off, the greenhouse is the perfect place to watch the environment change with the seasons, even day-to-day, In the mornings and evenings, the greenhouse is calm and peaceful, with its own special colours and smells. Things come to life as the day goes on with all the tasks being performed and all the measures in place to ensure ideal growing conditions for the plants.
It all undoubtedly contributes to our ability to work together so well. Because in the end, watching plants grow is an opportunity to marvel each day—at a seed that peeks out from the soil, or a leaf that opens and gradually goes from the pale green of springtime to the deep green of midsummer.
