It's Time for You to Have

The Garden of Your Dreams

“In the cultivation of the soil the thoughtful worker will find that treasures little dreamed of are opening up before him. No one can succeed in agriculture or gardening without attention to the laws involved. The special needs of every variety of plant must be studied. Different varieties require different soil and cultivation, and compliance with the laws governing each is the condition of success” 

Ellen White, Adventist Home, Chp 21.

A Few Words About Us

I’m a Jamaican by birth and much of my love for planting comes from my heritage as a Jamaican. My dad was a farmer so I was always surrounding by plants. In the small Jamaican community you can pretty much be self sufficient when all the plants within a locality is taken together. 

You probably don’t even have to go shopping at the super market. A kind of farmers coop kind of evolve out of different people on a street or community growing different foods. Which means people were very connected to the natural environment around them. 

I’m also interested in growing and nurturing indigenous Jamaican medicinal plants in the UK.  Another key aspect of Jamaica culture where people to a large extent rely on using natural remedies to cure symptoms of all types of illnesses and disease.
