Be Your Own Hero, by Kayleigh Bowyer.

Be Your Own Hero is about doing things you wouldn’t normally do, pushing yourself outside of your comfort zone and bringing the whole team along for the ride.  This May, it was my turn to challenge the team to #BeYourOwnHero.

 

It’s a fact, I’m terrible at keeping plants alive but I love nature and the outdoors. Conundrum, right?  Plants don’t normally stay alive for very long in my house, and that’s because I don’t have a clue about looking after them.  I think I’m doing a great job by watering them a lot, but apparently there’s a fine line between mothering and smothering.

With the aim of growing slightly greener fingers I chose terrarium making for my Be Your Own Hero.  None of the team had done it before and half the team didn’t know what a terrarium was. So, in true Onset spirit, it was a learning experience for all.

It’s 2018 and we’re surrounded by technology. I’m a strong believer in maintaining balance in all aspects of life and terrarium making was a good opportunity to go off grid. The afternoon meant a couple of hours to engage our right-side brains for some creative flow.

Merchant and Green in Surry Hills looked after us for the afternoon.  We huddled together, surrounded by flowers and led by Mitch who stepped us through the making process.

It took just shy of an hour to create a healthy home for our succulents using moss, soil and a variety of rocks and stones. Despite us all having the same ingredients, everyone’s terrarium was a unique reflection of our diverse personalities.

My Be Your Own Hero achieved exactly what it needed to. A moment to reflect and get back to nature, if only for an hour or two.
