Workshop Reflections

I thoroughly enjoyed this workshop.

I felt invigorated and inspired to take charge of my own garden at home and make it as beautiful as Natalie and Aaron's garden plots.

I was never aware of the vast number of herbs available, and now have a list of personal favorites I want to grow for my own use.

Thank you, Natalie! I didn't want the workshop to end!!

Had a fantastic time!! -- it was informative and fun!

I enjoyed getting acquainted with a variety of herbs, tasting the tea that had been brewed with herbs in the garden, and the meditation left me more consciously aware of the garden community of which we are each a part.

Kurt D. of Santa Monica, CA

Natalie really gave us an integrated garden to tea cup experience.

We met the herbs, seeing their beauty, feeling their various textures, and smelling them.  

Then we tasted them in a variety of teas.

Finally, we sat in meditation and listened to the herbs.

The workshop was really relaxing and stimulating at the same time.

Balcony Garden Summer Birds

Balcony Garden Summer Birds

The summertime has brought a colorful mix of birds through the #BalconyGarden in Glendale.  

Summer is a season of sharing for the hummingbirds.  They are territorial year round, but they will be more likely to share the feeder when it is really hot.  It is as though the heat makes them too tired to be aggressive enough to chase away the others.
