Plant with Maya

Gardening in a small space is challenging.  Plant with Maya hopes to inspire you with all the possibilities of gardening if you have a limited space.

Come, Plant with Maya and be with the community of plant people with the same mindset, who live, breath, and dream of plants.  We are happy to share our love, and passion of plants, as well as learn with you as we garden together.

The sense of connection we share with nature by bringing in plants into our lives, nurtures our soul and well-being.  Surrounding ourselves with plants certainly help us feel calm, and comfortable within the peaceful environment we created or tried to achieved.

Our hope is to share our passion and love outside our walls, to spread the love in so many ways to other communities around us and the world we live in.  Certainly, we can bloom with love wherever we are planted, choose to be a channel of peace, and healing in the world that is hurting and suffering right now.
