Summer Rayne Oakes keeps over 750 live houseplants spanning 400 species in her Brooklyn apartment. We are so excited that she will be joining us at our store @ Heal's, Tottenham Court Road store to celebrate her new book launch 'How to Make a Plant Love You'. Summer will be giving a houseplant demo and talk as well as a brief Q&A.
Ticket price includes your copy of the book.
For Oakes, potted plants aren't mere decoration; they offer
the opportunity to find joy by caring for another living being.
HOW TO MAKE A PLANT LOVE YOU explores the real
reasons why you should bring plants inside - there's a strong
psychological benefit to taking care of plants as a path to
mindfulness and reconnecting with the natural world.
This book ties together all the known benefits of taking care
of plants (lower blood pressure, lower stress, cleaner air) with
a bigger, less obvious benefit: Taking care of plants can
serve as a gateway to a more content life. Who doesn't want
to cultivate beauty, care for the natural world, and live
mindfully in these turbulent times?
In HOW TO MAKE A PLANT LOVE YOU Summer Rayne
Oakes shows us the way.
