Picking Honeysuckle, by Sophie Anderson . . .  —  Buy this art print at

An experimental spiritual community founded in 1962 on Findhorn Bay, located in northern Scotland near the Arctic Circle, and the site of a garden seemingly endowed with special powers.

At its peak in the late 1960s and early 1970s, Findhorn yielded eighteen-kilogram (40 lb.) cabbages and other plants and flowers that sometimes grew twice their normal size, despite the fact that the soil was nothing more than sand and gravel and the bitter climate of the North Sea made for abysmal growing conditions. Findhorn residents claimed that they received the directions for planting, cultivating, and managing their gardens from spirits that inhabit the natural world.

The Findhorn experiment has come to be viewed as a demonstration of the power and potential of human beings and the natural world living and working together in harmony.

Peter Caddy and coworker Dorothy Maclean, who established the first garden on the site claimed to have established contact with a spirit of the plant kingdom, called a deva, said to hold the archetypal pattern for each individual plant species. The devas provided specific information about every aspect of the garden: how far apart to plant seeds, how often to water, and how to remedy problems. Within a year Findhorn had been transformed with the gardens overflowing with life. Cabbages were over ten times their usual weight. Broccoli grew so large the plants were too heavy to lift from the ground.

As word of the garden spread, it became a model community for proponents of the New Age movement. By the early 1970s, more than three hundred people lived, worked, and studied in Findhorn. Residents viewed themselves as the vanguard of a new society based on the principles of cooperation between people and the kingdom of nature.

By the 1980s the plants, fruits, and vegetables had returned to normal sizes and none of the present gardeners claim direct contact with the natural world. Nevertheless, newer members of the community preserve the original spirit and ideas of the founders. Findhorn has a democratic government, a garden school, and a company to help small businesses within the community.
