11 Judgement Free Ways to Establish/ENJOY a Garden At Home.
For me sitting in, strolling around or physically tending to a garden is something that truly feeds my soul. I imagine it might be how some people feel when they mediate or go to church.
It brings me a sense of calm and complete appreciation of the world I am lucky enough to live in. I feel a deep connection with the Earth and myself in a way few other pastimes can bring about.
However, I completely understand this may not be the case for you.
For one it may not even be possible for you to have or to tend a garden due to physical or space restrictions.
Or perhaps you love having, strolling in and enjoying a garden also but the actually work of tending to one is not really your thing. I get that too. Luckily there are numerous other fools like me who would love to help you with that. ;)
Whichever side of the spectrum you lean towards, there are several ways to enjoy all the benefits of establishing garden in your life.
Hopefully one of the below will speak to you, maybe even two.

What type of garden girl are you?
“I prefer to Look and Appreciate”. Or…. “I prefer to Get My Hands Dirty”.
In this judgement free zone all are welcome. As long as you find joy in a garden in some way I am happy.
I have created a Garden Resource page for both types of garden lovers. There you will find books, foundations, tools and resources I have either used, visited and/or love.
