Gardening and Its Future

(p.37) Gardening and Its Future
The Liberty Hyde Bailey Gardener's Companion
John A. Stempien, John Linstrom
Cornell University Press

Working as a summary of section 1, this chapter identifies the garden as the medium for a relationship between the home and its "place in nature." The turning of the seasons as experienced in the garden serves as the home's natural structure, as the house serves as the physical structure. Types of gardens are listed as suggestions along with each type's importance for children's education, giving the student an opportunity to have "natural contact with nature." Lastly, a brief sketch of gardening's future is offered, in which homes, the countryside, parks, and public places all share a common partnership with gardens.
