Life Lessons from the Garden Virtual Event

2021 Annual Giving Campaign


“In honor of Earth Day, we recently invited Marcus Bridgewater to lead a discussion on gardening for wellness, and it was the most engaging webinar that we’ve had since the beginning of the pandemic. When asked in a survey what attendees enjoyed most, one participant said, ‘Everything but the end. I wanted it to continue.’ I think that sums it up perfectly! Even virtually, Marcus radiated such positive energy that uplifted and inspired all who attended the session, but especially those who are struggling with the isolation and burnout of the pandemic. His message of kindness, patience, and positivity is one that I hope all will incorporate into their lives moving forward.”

"Marcus led our employees through an inspiring, engaging, and uplifting hour of connecting gardening & nature back to positive personal wellness.  

His thoughts on vice, mindfulness and the power of getting your hands in dirt were particularly insightful. The attendees loved the event and I highly recommend booking him."

"Marcus Bridgewater of Choice Forward talked to the Women at Microsoft Charlotte about the power of kindness, patience, and positivity all while teaching us about our plants! I woke up this morning with a renewed sense of energy and a calm, deeper breath.  I feel like both myself and my plants would be better off if I listened to Garden Marcus daily.  His insights and wisdom can lead to a literal breath of fresh air.  Just ask your plants 😊 Thank you Garden Marcus! You truly are an inspiration."
