The Garden Song by David Mallett
The video clip features David Mallett, the writer of this gentle song. The grooves on my LP are deep from listening during my early gardening days in Ipswich, Massachusetts. I believe this recording is in the late 70’s or early 80’s. Pete Seeger, John Denver and Arlo Guthrie thought it was a great song too.
Mallett is a native of Maine and sings of the New England garden experience–making the stony ground fertile and hospitable to seed with mulch.
