Like each of you, Marcus Bridgewater, aka Garden Marcus, holds a deep-rooted belief in the ultimate power of connecting with nature and that caring for live floriculture creates a purpose and provides healing that cannot be replicated by any other product. Marcus will explain how he has grown a community through sharing this message with the world.
In a year of unprecedented challenges for the floral industry, it can be hard to remember that your hard work and perseverance is creating moments of joy for so many people. Marcus will dive into this message and discuss how plants are playing a critical role in fighting social isolation and creating connections, as consumers continue to purchase at higher rates than ever before.
