I have been a teacher in a title 1 school for three years now. Within my first year of teaching, I started caring for plants as a way to destress. I fell in love with succulents and Bonsais. The higher my stress level, the more succulents and bonsais I seemed to accumulate. This last year some of my succulents grew pups. I propagated some of the pups and put them into tea cups. Then, I started selling them to friends.
I found a dream. Since then, I have been saving what I make from selling my plants, recycling bottles, and what ever coins I find on the street. I want to open a shop. I want to sell succulents to others, that they may find joy and relaxation as well. I want to give terrarium building classes, maybe even a few kokedama bonsai classes, as well as open my shop to have people come and give essential oil classes or candle making classes.
I believe I can enrich my community with such a store. I want to give parents a chance to create with their children. Couples to have a wonderful date taking a class. Or someone like me, who is looking for someone to supply her plant addiction.
