The Religious Ethics are concerned with the meaning, and validity of religion for the lives of humans the ordering of societies and ecosystems. The Area addresses problems of the good life, justice, and the common good. For many religions it is important how nature and gardening can relate.

Earth-voices are glad voices, and earth-songs come up from the ground through the plants; and in their flowering, and in the days before these days are come, they do tell the earth-songs to the wind … I have thinks these potatoes growing here did have knowings of star-songs.” – Opel Whiteley, 8 years of age, The Singing Creek where the Willows Grow – The Mystical Nature Diary of Opal Whiteley, Penguin, 1994. We see how important the growth of the potatoes is to the character.
