Connecting with nature by giving nature a helping hand
Hi there! I’m Norman and I’ve been in the landscaping and gardening field for more than 22 Yrs. I have obtained a wealth of knowledge in this area. I love being nature’s helper. In fact my love and interest in gardening span all the way back to my childhood days.
As a child, I have had many wonderful experiences from creating successful vegetable gardens and having the pleasure of eating the many plants that I grew with my very own hands.
So it is my delight to share my knowledge with you so you can also have this delightful experience. We are going to learn how to give nature a helping hand.
Having a GREEN THUMB
Many people have said that in order to be successful at gardening you need a green thumb, well I have looked at a lot of successful gardeners in my time
including my mother in law who is very successful at gardening and I have never seen any of them walking around with a green thumb. Can you imagine how strange that would look?
So then it all comes down to knowledge. That is what makes a successful garden. Soon we will be learning and growing together.
Besides my childhood experiences, I have acquired many certifications in this field.
Some of the places where I have trained include the FNGLA out of Florida (Florida Nursery Growers Landscape Association), The Bahamas Landscape Association, LSS Training, Life Time Career School and I have also obtained my LLO. I am telling you the journey to get to this point has been great.
I have worked as a professional groundsman and interior plantscape designer at a few five-star resorts including many private homes. As a foreman on a 2-acre estate, as a nurseryman taking care of a host of garden plants both for outdoor and indoor gardens, overseeing a 3 million dollar landscape at our international airport. I also trained in the area as a chemical applicator caring out much fieldwork. So as you can see I have been busy in this field for some time now. But the fun and the excitement does not stop here.
In the health and wellness section of this website which can be found under categories, we will be looking at natural ways and remedies for healing from foods that we grow in our home gardens. What I love about natural healing is that it can save us a whole lot of $$$$$$$ by going nature’s way of helping us to live a more productive and happy life and there is so much more.
So sit down and relax, throw your feet up and explore the many exciting topics from this website enjoying the journey that Eden’s Garden brings to your table and remember let’s connect with nature by giving nature a helping hand.
