Our love for gardening originates from different places. Sadly, gardening is being overlooked. It is a low impact activity with positive benefits, from being outside, getting your vitamin D to having a sense of achievement.

Loving Support is here!

LSS Gardening Program is a free program created to assist you in keeping the gardening spirit. Something you love doing shouldn’t have to stop because you don’t have the assistance and support you need.
