You can grow your own food. We can help.

Sweet Dreams

This garden project started with me living in a small apartment and having nowhere to garden. Having the desire to get outside in the sunshine and breathing the fresh air and harvesting my own organic vegetables.I also wanted to get into shape with all squatting, lifting and digging that is required to garden. My dearest friend Heather said to me,"I have a spot at my yoga studio if you would like to start a garden your more than welcome to." So, it began, after many months of working in this garden I noticed a big shift within me. I was so happy to connect with nature and to have a spot to grow and harvest healthy organic vegetables while clearing my mind and getting into shape.The garden has grew and I have become more aware of doing this project with sustainiblity in mind. Harvesting rain water would be the first project we would install So, this garden would only cost pennies to run. What a dream to put in water barrels and collect rain water to feed existing water lines. Then we took this project to an even higher level and started to incorporate recycled functioning art that made it even more interesting and sustainable. So now we have Heather Promise Yoga Studio with an interesting sustainable garden to donate our harvest to One Love food bank to make salads and soup to feed over 300 homeless people in phx. Will you please make our Sweet Dreams come true?
