Spreading Seeds of Self-Care™

Taking time out of a busy day for self-care is essential for gardeners of all ages for maintaining both our mental and physical well-being. It allows us to recharge, reflect, and rejuvenate, which can lead to increased productivity and a more positive outlook on life. Spreading Seeds of Self-Care™ and cultivating healthy practices such as meditation, exercise, or simply taking a few moments to relax can help reduce weeds (stress) and plant the seeds to help nurture positive growth in our gardens.
