Social & Therapeutic Horticultural sessions and resources
At PoP gardens we know that:
Plants are essential to all aspects of our daily lives. We need plants for food, medicine, shelter, for the air we breathe and the water we drink.
Humans have an emotional connection with plants, flowers and wildlife which stems from our evolutionary process. In other words, it’s in our DNA and dates back from when we were living in caves and foraging to survive.
We relate to plants in many different ways: some people like a particular family of plants, some people like hardy strong plants that virtually look after themselves, and some people choose plants for their good looks or for purely sentimental reasons.
After all plants are like us in that they need a solid foundation, a healthy environment that suits their needs, suitable companions, balanced nutrition, fresh air, sunshine and the ability to adjust in order to survive!
