Episode 1: Expansion, Growth & Our Connection with Nature

Welcome to the very first episode of Flowerhood! Join me, Alex Frankpitt, as I delve into my personal background with horticulture, how this field has helped me add greater meaning to my life, and how we are all intrinsically connected to this planet. This new venture is one I’m excited to have new listeners on board for and I’m eager to watch as these next few weeks unfold.

In this introductory episode, I discuss what growth means to me in a broader sense, why I needed to shift my mindset outside of constant stimulation, as well as why having a connection with the earth is so important for our wellbeing. Throughout my life, I’ve always had a deep-rooted relationship with nature and have always found a way to incorporate that passion into the world around me, even if at times it was hard to find. This show acts as a reminder that we don’t need to lose sight of that connection and there is always a way to bring moments of growth to our own lifestyle.

I can’t wait to see where this journey goes, so sit back and join me in an all-new episode of Flowerhood!
