The Psychologies team are learning to grow (our own food) in the CoronaVirus crisis.

The Psychologies team are starting to grow through this crisis. Not just personally but in the garden too! We have all decided to plant our own 'seeds of hope' - with the intention that as our seeds begin to blossom into thriving plants, the crisis will have begun to abate. 

We are putting our focus on what we can control by taking baby steps so we are joining forces with The Dig for Victory Campaign, where over the next 8 weeks, we will follow simple instructions on how to grow our own food. We will be transforming our balconies, our lawns and tubs outside our front doors (and in my case - on the front of my canal boat!) into places where we can learn, get our hands in the soil, grow our own food and have some fun. 

Daniel Dobbie, creator of The Dig for Victory Campaign, will be with us live on our main Psychologies Facebook page next Tuesday at 1pm. Join us for inspiration and useful tips about how to make our gardens grow. Join us!

Editor of Psychologies, Psychologies

I am proud to be editor of Psychologies, a magazine that champions, challenges and coaches us to think differently so we can solve our own problems and create a life that nourishes us. Author of Making The Big Leap and The Big Peace, Suzy believes that the secret to happiness is living life to the full right here, right now, committing to a few goals now and again and taking Oscar, the Psychologies dog for a walk round the field when it all gets a bit too much.

A brilliant idea for young and old, it is never too early or late to learn to grow. The sense of achievement that comes from growing something from a seed is immense. My first brutal lesson that taught me so much about myself was when I had many carrot seedlings and I had to choose which ones to cull, for the greater good! I am an empath and could feel the emotional pain of those that were so full of hope and energy and I ended their hope. I realise that most people would laugh at this, my ex-husband did and I understand that, the majority wouldn’t hesitate. I still love growing my own food, nurturing it and being grateful for it’s goodness, and I still struggle at the cull.
