THE STORY OF LOVE, GIVING & SHARING
The meditative gardening pod is an oasis that allows individuals from nature-deprived places to connect with nature. Everyone needs and deserves space to quiet their mind. The meditative gardening pod is for anyone seeking refuge in a bustling metropolis.
My Gardening Experience
In the 1980s, my grandmother’s allotment kept our family from starvation during the winter. The restriction on food purchasing in Poland meant that urban dwellers struggled to feed their families without access to a garden. Some products were sold illegally; however, they had a massive price tag, and if caught, it meant imprisonment.
I still remember the pain in my granny’s eyes the day she had to sell the allotment. It was her safe haven, keeping her grounded and connected to nature in a disconnected society.
At the start of 2022, I started growing a balcony garden in my London flat to see if I could substitute some of the foods I bought. The garden has become an integral part of my creative practice.
