A Continental Garden Ancient Romans used to keep sacred forests they called ‘lucus’ and some of them are still present today. A continental garden is a seamless web of sacred forests that includes the Pyrenees, the Alps and the Bialoweisza Puszcza, the only remain of the same pristine forest that used to cover most of Europe until 2000 years ago. It flows inside cities, it spreads out to regions, to continents, and ultimately to the whole world. It equalizes our presence with all the rest and makes us breathe. [6]
