About Creatively Rooted
Your true soul''s potential is found rooted within you... and your garden.
Our journey unlawning really began with a broken lawnmower after installing new sod & flowerbeds in 2015. We’d been enjoying fixing up our property and creating our DIY backyard paradise since we purchased it in 2011. Our easy solution? Till up our luscious sod with Old Betsy and create a front yard flower and vegetable garden.
Seriously, laughable and totally us, to create another ever-evolving project in our yard. These outdoor projects have allowed us to (re) connect with ourselves, each other, our children, our property and the earth.
Our indoor and outdoor gardens serve as our green therapy (nature therapy) and are now part of our daily mental health and wellness practice. I can attest plants have made a direct impact on diagnosis of anxiety, depression and C-PTSD through my motherhood journey as a trauma warrior.
It is through our journeys that we also understand how important it is for mothers (especially) to re(connect) with themselves through the motherhood experience. We know firsthand how grounding gardening can be while digging in the dirt. It can also become a healthy hobby to participate with your spouse, friend, etc. and engage in purposeful work while your children are playing.
Our gardening journey inspired three of our neighbours to unlawn and we helped them as our previous company J.R. Worksmith, to create the foundation of what their gardens are today.We have found kindred spirits in our plant loving neighbours.
We understand that many new or experienced gardeners may not have the ability or know how to unlawn, build a retaining wall, or make their garden dreams their current reality. As Creatively Rooted, we hope to work with you to purposefully plan-design-build-plant your garden spaces curated with plants specific to each client’s journey.
We hope to inspire others to green-ify their indoor & outdoor spaces with plants, flowers & vegetables. We live the mental health benefits of our gardens daily and want to make gardening more accessible regardless of ability, gender, race, income with our larger community in Greater Moncton & surrounding areas, NB and beyond.
