The Apple Tree – Sparton
This is a simple journey into Rural Life Design, my first attempt at podcasting felt very polished and in a way I wanted to create something different. I was inspired by working with Richard Tomlinson and the Ignite programme to create a sound map. Sitting at the heart of the Life Design Image is an apple tree. This seemed like a good place to start so myself and Jon Guard went to purchase one. This probably sounds quite random but we wanted to find a way of planting New Leaf Rural Life Design into its new home.
The purchasing of an apple tree has been the start of a journey we have been working together to create a Mental Health Garden and prepare for an Apple Blessing
Ceremony to mark the next chapter of New Leaf. To celebrate the planting we looked to Pomona she was a Roman goddess who was the keeper of orchards and fruit trees. Unlike many other agricultural deities, Pomona is not associated with the harvest itself, but with the flourishing of fruit trees. Pomona day is the 1st November. We will share with you in a later podcast our Apple Blessing Ceremony. Music and production by Jon Guard
