Malibu Compost and The Couple’s Garden Written by


Denise Ritchie, founder of Bu’s Blend Biodynamic Compost joins Wanda Wen, the creator of a new and inspiring engagement process titled The Couple’s Garden during a filming of the process and background behind the entire initiative. The Couple’s Garden jumpstarted at Wanda’s company Soolip. Denise decided to retrieve more information regarding the unique idea of The Couple’s Garden by its very own creator directly on the set. The Couple’s Garden allows for newly engaged couples to plant a garden together, whether it be flowers or food, that will later be enjoyed with their friends and family at their own wedding. This creative idea encourages couples to participate in this process because it allows them to not only generate the seeds of their marriage, but also entails them to share the growth of their marriage with loved ones. Many have already been inspired by this innovative idea, just as Denise was on the set. Soolip recently wrote more about The Couple’s Garden and Denise on the set on their blog, be sure to check it out by clicking here!
