At first it looked like the typical story – study, a multinational company and career. But then the children came and it started to dawn on me that this is not the way, that this is definitely not my calling here in this world. I love fresh air and pure nature. I want to help and protect it and I want other people to feel the same. But what should I do? I asked myself. While I was on maternity leave, I did training in biosynthesis psychotherapy and training in coaching. I was strongly drawn in this direction, but I couldn’t get used to the idea of being a therapist and sitting in a room doing it. Then I got the opportunity to participate in garden therapy training organised by the EU in Austria. There, everything slowly started to come together. I realised that I’m happy in nature and that I can be myself there. So yes, therapy in nature! But how could I interest people in this therapy? And ideally full buses of people! At that point it wasn’t very clear to me :-)

….She said that she was a landscaper, that trees were her passion and that we would plant them. And that’s how it all began.
