Why Plants and Gardens?
We work with nature – Plants are just one part of nature, they were here years before humans and made many adaptions over time. We too can learn to adapt and grow depending on our environment.
Over time we have learnt how to influence plant growth, however in the end pre-determined factors will decide when they shoot, grow, flower or defoliate. So in the end it is about how we work together and accommodate the needs of the environment for our own survival.
Through understanding their natural growth cycle and behavior, we can learn much about ourselves.
