Seeds oF Gratitude
“My students absolutely loved Gardener Shanna’s You Are a Gardener workshop. Gardener Shanna has such amazing positive energy and a beautiful message of hope for young people. The students learned a few ways to overcome negative emotions (pull their weeds) and most importantly the most important tool of sharing their challenging emotions with someone they trust.
They also loved the origami activity and can’t wait for another visit. Thank you Gardener Shanna for everything you are doing for people of all ages.”

Using the language from "You Are a Gardener has been so helpful when students are upset. The imagery makes it much easier for them to handle!

I just read your book to a student and it fit perfectly with her struggle. We are going to focus on your 'seeds and weeds' program for the next few sessions that I have with her.
