5.0 out of 5 stars This is a delightful book of meditation
By Amazon Customer on August 9, 2020
Judging by its title, a casual reader may think that The Well-Gardened Mind is a self help book in which the author argues how people can transform their lives and improve their mental health by taking up the hobby of gardening. Indeed, Sue Stuart-Smith cites many real life examples and scientific evidence to illustrate how prisoners, veterans, at-risk youth, the elderly, and the mentally ill can all benefit from the healing power of gardening.

A more discerning reader, however, will know that Stuart-Smith accomplishes a lot more than arguing for the point that every gardener already knew. The garden is magical. It gives pleasure and joy. It has the power to heal. Everyone who has ever tended a garden knows this. But not every gardener knows why. This is where Stuart Smith distinguishes herself from other self help authors. She explains the whys by delving deeper into the existential meaning of doing and being, our relationship to mother earth, our experience of time, cognition in relation to nature, and the cyclical significance of growth and decay, living and dying. In other words, this book offers a lot more than support for mental health. It is a book of meditation on the interconnectedness of all things on earth. An ambitious undertaking no doubt, but highly readable and full of surprises, this book is a must read for everyone.
