The Core Values of You Are a Gardener® are rooted in the belief that no matter our age, background, culture or location, we are all ‘gardeners’ with the power to brighten our world by planting the seeds for positive change.

Staying rooted in a calm and confident mindset helps us to cultivate more flowers (joy & gratitude) and fewer weeds (stress) in our daily lives. By pulling our weeds aka pull your weeds (identifying our stress and worries and communicating them with trusted sources),  we open ourselves up to personal growth and plant the seeds for positive change.

By choosing healthy gardening tools; the activities, and exercises that help us feel confident and calm, we hold the power to manage our own emotions and stay rooted in a calmer mindset.(Some of our favorite gardening tools are: journaling, gratitude exercises, deep breathing, crafting, cooking, meditation, playing games, exercise...)

In efforts to inspire other gardeners, especially young gardeners, self-love is at the root of it all. We must love and respect ourselves in order to be able to spread seeds of gratitude, kindness, confidence, mindfulness, and respect, and become agents of positive change.

By embracing the vocabulary and mindset of You Are a Gardener®, you can  help sow the seeds for positive transformation within yourself, your home, your community and the world.

We are here to help you grow!
