Join us to discover simple steps of growing plants indoors and find ways of using our natural environment to combat stress and worries, one seedling at a time.
Becoming a student often means moving into your first home away from home. Under the current circumstances, we spend more time than usual there and it is important that your study and living space is a calm one. The first thing most people think about is buying a plant! But then how do you look after it? During this one-hour session, Mark Frith, an experienced Horticulture Therapist will explain how to plan your indoor garden, select plants and then how to propagate from them. If you already have some plants and experience some problems, like discoloured leaves or common pests, you may want to know how to remedy them. At the end of the session, Mark will be able to answer any of your questions, no matter whether you are starting off or are somewhat a more experienced gardener already.
Mark Frith is the founder of Growing Togetherness and delivers bespoke sessions on Horticultural Therapy to help communities grow and be more sustainable. He truly believes that taking time to learn something new and rewarding should be an important priority for people in this day and age, especially when highly pressured jobs and lifestyles are having such a negative impact.
