"I have had the unique opportunity to work closely with Robert Cordy for the last three years. Three years ago, the parish embarked on a garden revitalization project and invited Robert to submit a proposal. Two members of the steering committee were familiar with his work and thought it would be a good fit with the ecological vision of St. Gabriel's. This vision of a community living a mutually beneficial relationship with nature is embodied in the church architecture and there was a desire to have embodied in the new gardens as well. Robert's proposal was for gardens developed on the principles of permaculture, using techniques such as Hugelkultur to achieve low-maintenance, self-nurturing installations. It also included education of the Garden Ministry and parish members on post-project maintenance of the gardens. An additional component of his proposal was mentoring and training youth by direct engagement in the project. Over the past three years Robert has committed himself to this vision and project. The parish is now enjoying a beautiful and abundant urban orchard in our north garden, and by this fall will celebrate a south garden that combines both orchard trees and indigenous meadow flowers. Already, the butterflies, bees and birds are abundant. – Garden Coordinator, St. Gabriels Parish
