A little bit about Houseplant Hospital…

Our Mission is to encourage sustainable practices for in-home gardening application and provide resources for in-home gardeners. Recycling, re-use, and salvage for plants and ceramic containers to keep these sorts of things out of landfills is a key concept. Management and utilization of Swarthmore’s bamboo resources is another company goal.

We also provide a showcase for local artists and meeting place for small groups to get together. Workshops for building birdhouses, botanical exploration, and plant care are happening from time to time and available upon request. We can help you to create your own happier human habitat!

Weekly Care of Plants in Home or Office
Do you enjoy the beauty and serenity that plants offer and simply do not have the time to care for them? I am happy to provide weekly support and maintenance for your plants. Cost is negotiable, dependent upon travel distance and the number of plants that require care.
Home/Office/Business Plant Care Visitation

 $18 per hour

Can include a combination of the items on the right at your home or workplace. We could schedule a trip to a local greenhouse or nursery… if there is something you’d like to create or find, I can help.

Be Creative!

Host a Small Gathering

Up to 12 people can meet comfortably in The Houseplant Hospital Gallery. We have workshops going on from time to time and upon request. Have an idea for a workshop? Let me know how I can help make it happen! Hosting or participating in a workshop could lead to an interesting morning/afternoon/evening out in town with friends.
