The sessions will start with a brief introduction of the context, background to learn about you and your connected status in wellness, health and garden. Then you will be taken into different corners of the garden, and be introduced to the interesting stories around the plants and vegetables.

My name is Hanh Nguyen from Hanoi, Vietnam. I work in travel industry for over 12 years and have been practicing herbs and gardening for over 5 years. I often go to my family garden daily where we grow fresh ingredients for cooking and many herbal plants for the remedial usage in keeping ourselves healthy. I would like to invite you a cultural journey on both current ways of life now in Vietnam and the application of herbal medicines via extended visit to my garden which is a great way of easing your stress, especially during the current lock-down situation in many parts of the world. It also helps to promote inner flow of energy and feel connected to the nature. Best of all, I will show you how to prepare the herbal compress from the herbs and use them for healing massage.

I loved how Nguyen weaves together so many interconnecting topics in this experience -- gardening, history, botany, cuisine, tea, medicine and more! It touched on something that each member of my family was interested in! It was really wonderful and kind of him to share his personal experiences and the role the garden holds for him and his family and community. Also I had no idea how easy it is to dry your own tea leaves!

This experience really captured that joyful feeling of discovery that is travel. Nguyen walks you through an evening visit to his family garden in Hanoi. Where he shares his passion for plants, herbal medicine and massage. You leave feeling that you have experienced something unique and memorable.

I wasn’t sure what to expect with this experience, but I was blown away by how interesting it was! Such a uniques opportunity to visit a garden in Vietnam in real time! Nguyen is a fantastic and personable host. He has mastered the art of using live video for online experiences. I learned so much and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Definitely check this out!

It is hard to find such an enthusiastic, knowledgeable and inspiring guide. He loves his garden and the herbs and he knows how to grow them and use them in medical purpese. A lot to learn from.

Nguyen was a great host. I love his herb garden. I learned a lot about different herbs and benefits of those. Nguyen also showed how to make herbal ball for massage! That was so good. I didn’t expect that when I booked. It was a great surprise as a bonus! Highly recommended!
