All our profits on WMHD will go to the Mental Health Foundation

10th October is World Mental Health Day, and we are really excited to be donating 100% of our profits on the day to the Mental Health Foundation.

Stock up on plant happiness to help us raise money and build awareness around mental health and the benefits of accessing nature.


Why I founded The Stem.

While working in the City I failed to develop healthy coping mechanisms to deal with the stress and ended up battling my own mental health issues. Traveling to remote places of natural beauty rebuilt my connection with nature and in turn my own sense of being.

I decided that I wanted to create a business and a platform that could help others find their own sanctuary in nature through spreading the joy of plants across London and in time the rest of the UK.

We are on a mission to spread #planthappiness and we are driven by our desire to improve our communities' lives and create lasting change.

I feel privileged to be able to help people access plants and nature through The Stem and I hope my own personal experience can reduce stigma and help people to know they are not alone.
