Depressed with her modern lifestyle at present; And at the age of 24, Alice decided to find the solution to make change her life, and she’s finally found a life balance with nature through her garden in Bristol. Like many other young people, modern life with internet, smartphones, and hasty lifestyle often creates undesirable pressures in each person’s life.
Likewise, after she finished studying with business master at a university, she soon found herself a job in the city. But gradually she soon realized that it was not the life she dreamed of when waking up every morning to the office in front of the computer all day and back home at night in a tired mood.
Alice wants to change her life before it’s too late. Then one day, she read a magazine about the benefits of gardening that will help balance her life, regain love for nature, and help her stay away from the hasty lifestyle in British cities.
She decided to return to her home in Bristol and look for the idea of growing her garden with a variety of vegetables and plants.
She tried to make her garden with more plentiful plants by the method she ever read in the magazine about landscaping with fruit trees – alternating with other plants and adding colorful flowers, some banana trees for a tropical color and feeling. Day by day, she’s work with soil, wheelbarrow & find the suitable plants for her garden.
The mix of fresh vegetables and fruits as well as colorful flowers makes Alice happy
Now waking up every morning to keep the air fresh, Alice often walks around the garden to enjoy the achievements she has built over the past months.
Since moving to life close to nature with her garden, she also changed from working as a full time at company office to work as freelancer with her writing at home. Every night she takes jobs from everywhere, she now doesn’t have to wake up every morning & taking the train in hasty way to go to work like before. Many friends congratulate on her style of living, and she often meets them for cafe at weekend as her free time.
“I have read many documents about caring for plants & flowers in the garden. I decided to grow herbs, beans, tomatoes, hot peppers & potatoes … pumpkins, grapes, strawberries, apple pear, lettuce, spinach, cabbage & lots of different flowers” – said Alice
“Usually in the spring, I choose the right organic fertilizers to fertilize my garden plants. Usually in the spring, I choose the right organic fertilizers to fertilize my garden plants. Weeds are controlled by placing layers of cardboard & wood chips to decompose, thereby adding nutrients to the plants.” – She added more
Alice’s advice to any gardening enthusiast is to try to grow plants that are low in pests. Opting out of pesticides, predators like birds will help control pests in your garden. Birds will eat caterpillars on cabbage stalks, while wasps’ parasites will kill hornworms on tomatoes.
I give lots of fresh vegetables & fruits to my friends and neighbors. I also volunteer at a community garden and hope to one day grow enough food to donate to local food banks.
Gardening better for you and better for the planet. It is a win-win! And it’s better to wander around a beautiful garden full of food than to mow the lawns!
Gardening’s now been a trend among hasty lifestyle of the cities in the world. We need to learn how to show the love with gardening
