Gardening With Soul - An Award winning Film to Inspire You
Gardening With Soul won Best Documentary Award at the New Zealand Film Festival. It is an inspiring story about an elderly nun, Sister Loyola, who tends her cloister’s gardens with a marked passion for her task.
The opening starts with a storm and shows her inventive protective makeshift “covers” (old milk jugs) that saves the tender plants. Cane in hand, Sister Loyola walks to the church’s on-site shed and surveying the scene says, “I spend a lot of time out here.”
Sister Loyola opines, "The garden is saying to me all the time, ‘life is evolving, life is evolving’—So if you’re going to spend the last few years of your life worrying about how to survive, you’re wasting your time”.
Gardening With Soul is available for fundraiser screenings for community gardening groups, churches, and other organizations across the United States. More info can be found here.
