Marcus is the CEO and founder of Choice Forward, a wellness company focused on empowering individuals and strengthening communities. He joins us from Houston, Texas, to share his knowledge and philosophy about growing plants that don’t produce food.

Marcus Bridgewater’s new book uses gardening as a metaphor for ways to take care of ourselves.

Plants Marcus mentioned during our conversation:

  • Philodendrons – some for indoors, some for outside in the shade
  • Pothos (which is a philodendron) – the houseplant voted most likely to succeed for beginners
