Marcus made an appearance at our inaugural all-company meeting. His words were powerful, moving and genuine. He further bonded our team and was a true source of inspiration for all of us."

Garden Marcus

Social Media Icon

When work and life responsibilities challenged Marcus’ ability to care for his mental health, physical fitness, and spirit he sought and found refuge in his garden.

Marcus purchased hundreds of dying plants and brought them each back to health, and in doing so he discovered the countless parallels between the growth of plants and the growth of people.

In 2019, a friend suggested he take his plant and personal growth observations to social media. “Garden Marcus,” the embodiment of the Choice Forward philosophy, took the internet by storm and continues to share positivity online today.

Through the eyes and voice of Garden Marcus, we can learn how to tend to ourselves and grow together!
