Suzanne enjoys connecting people with the therapeutic benefits of gardening and the many inter-related activities that go with it. To her it is like gardening itself, it develops gradually and continues to draw you in, exploring the many options to go forward in a personal journey of discovery.
For Suzanne, a garden and gardening is humbling, joyous, physically exerting, healing, safe, beautiful and very rewarding. Probably an accurate description of what happens at the APCG.
