Client Reviews on past Dolce Vita Events:

"Such a wonderful feeling to see these little sprouts! Seeing my healthy blooming garden is so satisfying! You start by planting the seeds & watering it every day, feed it nutrients & fertilizer, bringing it into sunlight & darkness depending on what’s needed, prune & cut to have more growth, and watch your garden grow with pride. It’s very therapeutic!"
