Many of us have named our garden, but I think a mission statement goes further. It forces you to think about what you are trying to accomplish with your garden, encompassing not only short and long term goals but even a broader garden philosophy, or raison d’etre, if you will.
I find the idea intriguing and am going to mull over and ponder my garden’s mission statement in the next few weeks. I think it might help give a focus to my catalog browsing and wish list making. I’ll share it once I’m satisfied that I’ve gotten it right.
I hope you’ll take up the challenge and share your garden’s mission statement as well.
