Intergenerational stewardship is a fancy term for Papa John showing Pancho how to use a shovel in the garden. With both of their feet on the shoulder of the shovel, they feel the resistance then break of the soil, the plunge of the cutting edge into the ground. The hole formed, compost working in and the Earth enriched. In this way we enter the grand cycle of elements, renewal and grounded consciousness.

As Wendell B. says, "Only by growing some food for yourself can you become acquainted with the beautiful energy cycle that revolves from soil to seed to flower to fruit to food to offal to decay, and around again." Get to know your soil, the stuff you're born of and destined too.
