We’re exploring the shady world of sin this month. Don’t worry, it’s not all doom and gloom. We’ll be talking to a few sinners about life with plants, exploring a prison garden, hanging out at petrol stations, learning about killer plants, bad trips, and more. We’ll be having fun with it, of course.

“There’s a charm about the forbidden that makes it unspeakably desirable,” said Mark Twain. Uh huh. Mae West concurred, saying ‘To err is human, but it feels divine.” Doing things we know we shouldn’t is part of being human and alive. We need the bad stuff so we can see the goodness. Compare and contrast… you know how it goes.

We’re taking a fairly light approach to the concept of Sin within our content this month, primarily because judging other people’s behaviour isn’t our thing. Nothing is black and white in our world. If you’re not into Christianity, Judaism or Islam, sin as a concept may not really resonate with you, and in Buddhism sin isn’t a thing at all, because there’s no God to violate. So, really, we’re talking about people living their lives, with plants.

We’re all flawed, lets celebrate.
