Connecting with nature in gardens and farms to promote hope, joy and healing.
In This Podcast: It was after her cancer treatments and when she was feeling very low, that Jenny Peterson was encouraged to go into her outdoor space. The hope and healing she found during her recovery was enough that she now guides and encourages others to find their wellness through gardening and connecting with the natural world. Her experience has been a spring board to helping many others find their hope through the dark times.
