Overview

"We are just one little family on a small homestead deep in a wild place. What we can do is small, but perhaps through this book we can impart the wisdom we have discovered. It is just this: spirit and enchantment and reality are bound together in a green world full of wonders."

Living Green with the Spirits of the Land

In 2007, the Seruntine family relocated to a secluded Nova Scotia homestead. They made it a point to live gently upon the land by growing and raising their own food, living in balance with the surrounding forest, and honoring Nature's spirits. In return, the land and the spirits looked after them. Seasons of the Sacred Earth follows life deep in their woodland hollow through a magical year. It is a marvelous journey into a place where gardens grow by love and magic, where children romp through enchanted forests, where mystery beckons by light of fireflies. And living close to Nature, they discover an ancient truth: the magical and the mystical are never farther than Earth and Sky.
