    beautiful, very beautiful. I live in Miami, plants don’t thrive like those in your garden. I imagine you are in Florida. Do you know any area that you recommend? I would be interested in planting tropical fruit trees. Mango, Guyana, Anon, etc Thank you very much.

    ♥️♥️♥️

  14. Jeanette Requintin on April 4, 2022 at 6:51 pm

    I WISH ALL HOMEOWNERS ASSOCIATION and CITY GUIDELINES would adapt. I revolt at the thought as homeowner, you are only allowed to plant what the city of HOA wants, or worst just wants manicured grass lawns INSTEAD of EDIBLE PLANTS

  15. Abby Schiera on April 4, 2022 at 6:52 pm

    I absolutely love this! Thank you for everything you are doing. 💚

  16. Trasea G on April 4, 2022 at 6:52 pm

  19. Marika Heitmann on April 4, 2022 at 7:00 pm

    She seems so lovely, wise and warm-hearted. And generous. ♥

  20. Ignece Valdy on April 4, 2022 at 7:01 pm

    Those 24 people who dislike the video( Are they ok) If you don’t like gardening just Ignore it. That’s was unnecessary

  21. Victor Aldan on April 4, 2022 at 7:01 pm

    Help!! I wish I can do this here in Saipan, Mariana Islands..Hafadai:|~~~

  22. Pedro Petracco on April 4, 2022 at 7:01 pm

  26. C A M I L A on April 4, 2022 at 7:06 pm

    Her aloe plant story was so interesting! Imagine having something with so much history.

  27. Aaron Gassman on April 4, 2022 at 7:07 pm

    I love this from beginning to end

  33. Bronek on April 4, 2022 at 7:15 pm

    I feel so sad when I can see kids wearing masks

  34. Katherene Wedic on April 4, 2022 at 7:16 pm

    She has more from her heritage in regards to that plant than most and BTW. what most people think is their heritage is fabricated, & they don’t even know that remember that

  35. Lori Walker-Brandon on April 4, 2022 at 7:16 pm

    Love this so much – we all need more of this!

  36. omaya rushd on April 4, 2022 at 7:19 pm

    Strong willpower , resilience, and a loving humanity is what this beautiful woman represents here. All humanity must garden, for that is the key for defeating fascism ad food shortages ! Bravo my lady!

  37. Ashish Pandey on April 4, 2022 at 7:19 pm

    Such a loving soul 🙏

  38. f youtubecensorship on April 4, 2022 at 7:20 pm

    Folks like you keep folks like me going. Thank you so much Chantal.

  39. Arleth on April 4, 2022 at 7:21 pm

    Beautiful garden! Awesome tip 8:23 thank you so much 😊

  40. puggirl415 puggirl on April 4, 2022 at 7:22 pm

    Love this! This is why we need housing security so we can set up mutual aid like Chantal did by using our yards to grow food to nourish ourselves and the community. Without places for the public to grow their own food we won’t be able to reach our goal of sustainability. For the poor and marginalized the common public good is essential as we often don’t have private property to sustain ourselves. Wonderful video! Chantal’s generosity of spirit is a lesson to the me, my, mine attitude we all currently suffer under in the USA.

  41. Echy on April 4, 2022 at 7:24 pm

    Such an inspirational lady!
    Hoep her neighbors and many of us will adapt planting like she does..

  42. Carissa Wyles on April 4, 2022 at 7:24 pm

    She feels like the magical neighborhood witch that you want on every street corner. The value she brings to her community and beyond is immense. I dream of being this brave – the social anxiety I feel just thinking about interacting with my neighbors in this way is overwhelming, yet I also crave that community connection. I’m just starting out learning to garden, but I hope that someday I can cultivate such a beautiful space <3

  43. Nancy Fahey on April 4, 2022 at 7:25 pm

    OMG, you’re telling my story. Standing in the kitchen was agonizing after 10/15 minutes. But moving around in the garden was healing. I’m almost off my last medication.
    Thank you, Rob.

  44. Jardins Marizá on April 4, 2022 at 7:26 pm

    It irritates me when people say "The world needs more people like Chantal". This is a lazy comment, hoping that "someone out there" will do the work. I would prefer to see "Wow! I She has inspired me so much that´m going to go out and do something like she has done!" (In fact, several of the comments below are of people who have been inspired to take action!)

  45. Albert Beauchesne on April 4, 2022 at 7:26 pm

    What a sweet Lady. Blessed.

  46. deadtreebark on April 4, 2022 at 7:28 pm

    If only their were more people like her , the world be a better place

  47. Julian on April 4, 2022 at 7:29 pm

    Its way better than grass lawn

  48. green house fun on April 4, 2022 at 7:31 pm

    Just beautiful.

  49. Katie Kamala Haley on April 4, 2022 at 7:32 pm

    Classy lady, I share her passion for my organic garden and food forest. It’s the most important movement happening right now in society. To grow our own food and help others do the same in the spirit of community. We are all one. Namaste.

  50. fire burnz on April 4, 2022 at 7:35 pm

    what an amazing woman.
