The Love of Gardening is a seed once sown that never dies!

Updated: Jan 11, 2022

For my first blog with you, I decide to talk about the origin of my love for plants! Vegetation is part of the irreplaceable natural heritage of the world. Maybe you don’t think you were born with a green thumb, but after tilling, planting, nurturing and harvesting plants, you might see a slightly different person in the mirror: a person who can grow things and is a little more in tune with the earth. Gardening gives you a chance to focus on something and put your mind to work with a goal and a task in mind. In this fast-paced society, it is very important to decompress and find your inner peace... Caring for plants can also do wonders for your own wellbeing, an abundance of scientific research suggests. The physical exercise can contribute to a healthy weight and blood pressure levels, and just interacting with flora can improve your mood and mental health. It's incredible how nature has a huge impact on health and wellness! Horticultural therapy is an ancient and yet increasingly popular method widely used to help people who have experienced trauma or are struggling with mental health issues. I understand very well why! Since my childhood, mother nature with her beautiful plants have been part of my life. This passion as started with my mother and my grandmother who also adore plants and gardening. I vividly remember helping them take care of their plants and beautiful gardens! I remember the smell of fresh vegetables, dirt on my fingers and water all over me and mostly the joy and happiness that we have together... What wonderful memories! If you think about it, I'm sure you have such memories too! Year after year, my love for plants increased dramatically. My mother had devoted all the available windows in the house to me, so that I could grow life in my turn! It didn't take long for our home to turn into an urban jungle!!!

The years have passed, and in turn, I can pass this passion for horticulture on to my sons and to this wonderful community of plant lovers! I have lived in Vancouver for eleven years. During those years, I had created an ecological center where I taught families and childrens the importance of taking care of our mother earth. Permaculture, organic farming and the basics of horticulture were the essential foundations of this center. I had the chance to work with amazing people who, like me, had the passion and thirst for endless learning! Together, we could share our knowledge, which is not found in any book …

Back in Quebec city, my passion for horticulture is even greater! I want to share this knowledge and experience with you, and that together we become an even more passionate community united by the love of plants ...

With Love,



Pour mon premier blog avec vous, je décide de parler de l'origine de mon amour pour les plantes ! La végétation fait partie du patrimoine naturel irremplaçable du monde. Peut-être que vous ne pensez pas être né avec la main verte, mais après avoir labouré, planté, entretenu et récolté des plantes, vous pourriez voir une personne légèrement différente dans le miroir : une personne qui peut faire pousser des choses et qui est un peu plus en phase avec La terre. Le jardinage vous donne l'occasion de vous concentrer sur quelque chose et de vous concentrer sur un objectif et une tâche en tête. Dans cette société en évolution rapide, il est très important de décompresser et de retrouver la paix intérieure... Prendre soin des plantes peut aussi faire des merveilles pour votre propre bien-être, suggèrent de nombreuses recherches scientifiques. L'exercice physique peut contribuer à un poids et à une tension artérielle sains, et le simple fait d'interagir avec la flore peut améliorer votre humeur et votre santé mentale. C'est incroyable à quel point la nature a un impact énorme sur la santé et le bien-être ! La thérapie horticole est une méthode ancienne et pourtant de plus en plus populaire, largement utilisée pour aider les personnes ayant subi un traumatisme ou aux prises avec des problèmes de santé mentale. Je comprends très bien pourquoi ! Depuis mon enfance, dame nature avec ses belles plantes fait partie de ma vie. Cette passion a commencé avec ma mère et ma grand-mère qui a
