Put your headphones in, and get your hands in the dirt. This episode is going to fill your ears and heart with purpose and a mission (and some ideas for Spring planting!). Meet Deanna Kitchen; she is wife, momma, farm girl, entrepreneur, floral designer and teacher, owner of flourishing Twig & Vine dahlia farm, and founder (also Chief Flower Giver) of the non-profit Growing Kindness Project (GKP). Their mission is simple, and yet quite profound; grow kindness. GKP's aim is to empower, educate, and encourage acts of kindness through the growing and giving of flowers. They freely give dahlia tubers to people with the intent to grow and continue the ripples of kindness in their own communities. GKP has ambassadors worldwide and offers education so any level grower can participate.
This all started with a mom and her boys, a squeaky wagon full of dahlias and a desire to spread joy in their community. Nothing tricky or overly strategic. Just share kindness and joy. As is always the case, the giver is just as blessed as the receiver. Those dahlias were the catalyst to a worldwide movement to spread kindness by a process of grow, cut, give, repeat. And it is working, and growing as fast as Deanna's busy hands, lots of volunteers, and rows of dahlia fields can manage. Listen to her heart-full story, the start of something profound, and hear about how you can participate in growing kindness from your own plot of dirt. It's as easy as purchasing dahlia tubers-which YOU CAN DO!
