Gardeners understand that there is a time and a season for everything. And they understand that eventually, the frost will come. There are many things that can cause frost in an Eden Alternative garden –a bad survey, a turnover of key employees, a change in ownership, or a change in the priorities and focus of the leadership team. What we must understand is what every gardener knows. Frost is a natural part of the life cycle of a garden. Frost happens. But gardeners also understand that the frost doesn’t kill the garden. The only thing that can kill the garden is if the gardener despairs and fails to replant. We say that an organization is not really practicing The Eden Alternative until they have experienced a frost and overcome it. The way to overcome a frost is to adopt the virtues that the garden teaches us – patience, humility and forgiveness.
