Om, Great Space!

On September 17, when Occupy Wall Street began to protest corporate greed, Kris took these cool photos of The Free Farm. Just viewing these photos reminded me how nature can bring serenity into an intense world.

According to Clare Cooper Marcus, professor emerita in landscape architecture at UC Berkeley, nature helps reduce stress because it puts our mind in a state similar to meditation. Think Om, as in Organic matter :o) in our compost!

Plus, The Free Farm meets her criteria for a Great Space ( it’s “accessible; people are engaged in activities there; the space is comfortable and has a good image; and finally, it is a sociable place: one where people meet each other and take people when they come to visit.”
