May 2024 Blog Post: Celebrating AAPI Heritage Month: Embracing Creativity & Connection Through DIY Plant Projects

Hello, Plant Besties!

As May unfolds, I not only celebrate the vibrant colors of spring but also honor Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month. Let's take this opportunity to support our local small Asian-owned businesses, including plant shops, which are integral parts of our communities.

With summer on the horizon, our plants are poised to thrive in the warmth of spring and summer. As we nurture our green companions, let's also take time to nurture our inner selves through creative endeavors.

Studies have shown the therapeutic benefits of engaging in creative activities, particularly for adults seeking to reconnect with their inner child. This month, I will explore five DIY projects tailored for adult plant lovers, each offering an opportunity for healing and self-expression.
