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. My love and interest in gardening span 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 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, so 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, and 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 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 of ornamental pest control carrying 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 do not stop here.
Many plants are known to bring natural healing without having any side effects and can save us a ton of $$$$$$$ by going nature’s way helping us to live a more productive and happy life what is even more amazing is some of these plants can be grown from our backyard gardens!!
So sit back and relax, throw your feet up, and explore the many exciting topics from this website, Enjoy the journey that Eden’s Garden brings to you, and remember let’s connect with nature by giving nature a helping hand.
