Green-thumbing: the art of self-care at The Grove at Plantation Hills

At The Grove’s Garden Lot, nurturing one’s own natural space through home gardening means taking an active role in practicing essential self-care amid prevailing uncertainties. 

As we try to find more ways to cope with a massively disruptive health crisis, taking charge of our emotional and mental well-being becomes more crucial than ever. This may mean having to stay grounded for the long haul, socially distanced from the company of friends. But studies show that people who spend more time communing with nature have a significantly more positive outlook on life and increased feelings of vitality and energy.

This positive outcome is what inspires The Grove at Plantation Hills to declare that “the road to self-care is paved with greens.” Future homeowners at this beautiful and lush residential enclave within Tagaytay Highlands flex their green thumbs as they enthusiastically engage in self-care via vegetable gardening.

Indeed, the pandemic has spawned ‘plant therapy’ enthusiasts who now happily tend to their flourishing home gardens which channel their stresses into something beautiful, productive and uplifting.

Be it low-maintenance succulents and rare ornamentals cared for in patios or even herbs and vegetables cultivated at one’s backyard, The Grove at Plantation Hills provides ample green space for nurturing plants. This eco-farming community is a 22-hectare land area that is master-planned to be a leisure residential and farming concept-in-one.

As they settle down in their Garden Lots, the joy of eco-farming, a shared activity with fellow residents, will help forge a holistically healthy community where their families—and not just plants—bloom and grow. After all, studies prove that people who care for nature are more likely to care for others, and more easily form shared bonds that result from common interests.
