You try as a small business owner to keep your business on track. Much like a carefully tended compost bin, it takes a balanced mix of growth and stability to not become a stinking rotting mass :) Well in the past week, our little company and many others feel like we've had the proverbial lid chewed off..
But like our plants, we are resilient. So are you and so is your garden. While we cannot visit your homes during the shelter in place order, we can still give you guidance and help as you begin your garden projects.
Vivant has just launched a virtual Q&A so we can guide you through whatever garden project you would like to work on during this time. Need ideas on how to clear a part of your yard for a pollinator habitat? I can talk you through that. Want someone to look over your garden plan for the year? Sure thing! Know something needs pruning and have no idea how to do it? You get the idea.
If you have never grown something from seed, now is the perfect time to try it and see the miracle inside a mustard seed. I'll be here to cheer you on!
A friend once sent me an article about the meticulous and magical garden maintained by a NASA employee. He'd spent decades working on the development of the Mars Rover. As it got closer to takeoff, the employee would wake up in a dead sweat at 3am worried that an engine would malfunction, a calculation wasn't right, etc. Whenever the panic set in, he'd go work in his garden to calm him, ground him and give him something else to focus on. From the looks of it, his garden could have supplied a supermarket. Now is the time to keep growing and find solace in your garden.
So reach out! Post pictures of your garden victories on our Facebook Page and or tag us on Instagram so we can celebrate them together. There is so much we can still do!
