    Backyard Flower Farming and Gardening Through Grief

    Backyard Flower Farming and Gardening Through Grief

    In this episode I talk with backyard flower farmer Tracy Huntley of Springwell Gardens about running a small scale flower farm at home but also how gardening has helped her process her own grief in the face of challenging circumstances.


    In this episode we talk about a number of books: 

    - Cool Season Flowers

    - The Flower Farmer

    - When Things Fall Apart



    You can download the free PDF Spring Seed Planting Guide for zone 7B that I talk about in this episode at the Gather Goods Co website here: https://www.community.gathergoodsco.com/resources/

    You can find more information about Tracy and follow her business on instagram at https://www.instagram.com/springwellgardens/

    Active Mental Rest, What Is It And Why Do We Need It?

    Active Mental Rest, What Is It And Why Do We Need It?

    In this episode I talk about the concept of "Active Mental Rest". It is something we often hear when it comes to exercise, the idea of resting after growing and stretching our muscles but we less often apply that to our productivity as well. I talk about what it is, why we need it and ways you can include it in your own life.


    I also recommend a few books and apps that I like:

    - Burnout: The Secret To Unlocking The Stress Cycle
    - Smiling Mind Meditation App
    - Breath App

    You can download the free PDF Daily Reflection and Journal that I talk about in this episode at the Gather Goods Co website here: https://www.community.gathergoodsco.com/resources/
