Show Notes-

On today’s episode of Cultivating the Lovely, host MacKenzie Koppa sits down for a fun chat with three of her real life friends: Becca Lux, Katie Duckett and Chelle Bruzas. They tell us all about two different kinds of therapy that we can all be taking part in during these challenging times using flour and flowers! And they had so much fun doing it, that we have a bonus episode with even more goodness coming out tomorrow, so be sure and check back to get in on the fun!

  • A little about what “flour therapy” is and why you should join the Patreon group and get in on all the doughy goodness
  • The ladies share how they got the idea for “flower therapy” in the first place
  • Katie talks about her intense love for flowers and how she always stays prepared to gather flowers wherever she goes
  • Becca shares some information about why gardening is actually physically, mentally and emotionally so healthy
