Nocturnal Gardening portrays a group of women living by alternative norms and who have each, on their own, established communities. The women stand for sensitivity, connection, and communication with other communities, plants, animals, and elements.

The film Nocturnal Gardening is a conversion of human psychic content into an imagery that enhances our moral landscape for our own decision making, both in terms of ecology and interdependent values, as well as in the care for ourselves, our neighbors, and our earth.
