My Plants & Nature for Wellbeing talk explores the history of social and therapeutic horticulture and how both plants and nature overall help our physical and mental health wellbeing. After some interesting facts about nature and how we are connected together, I will provide my top plants that you can grow at home to help with common health issues. Some may surprise you! It's a fun, relaxed talk but with a serious message. Tree hugging is involved!
Creating memory containers is about a new and fun style of planting to create new memories or to evoke happy memories from days gone by. Together we will create a memory container as I talk through plant tips and care focussing on how to look after your own wellbeing as you plant.
The Magical World of Nature & Plants is all about the extraordinary way that plants communicate and survive, cure us and kill us and how this is all intrinsically linked to our wellbeing. Nature is awe inspiring and that is what this talk is all about. When you leave, you will have a new appreciation of your personal connection with the fascinating natural world.
Growing your own food for a plant based diet. There are many ways to grow your own food to ensure you are getting the nutrition and variation a plant based diet can provide. I will talk through seasonal produce, growing tips and even some homemade recipes. You'll leave feeling a buzz of healthiness.
Houseplants for good wellbeing is about discovering the benefits of growing houseplants, how to care, connect and create stunning displays in the home for positive wellbeing. Looking at the types of plants perfect for different positions and care needs but mostly how to surround yourself with plants for health and wellbeing.
