Choice Forward is the company I created to empower individuals and strengthen communities. I spent years traveling and studying, learning about mental health, physical fitness, and spiritual awareness. My journey led me to develop a philosophy that guides me in leading a positive and productive life. I share this philosophy through life-coaching, mentoring, seminars, workshops. Garden Marcus is the embodiment of the Choice Forward philosophy.

The Power of Plants: Joy, Healing, Creating Connections and Fighting Isolation
"Marcus led our employees through an inspiring, engaging, and uplifting hour of connecting gardening & nature back to positive personal wellness.
His thoughts on vice, mindfulness and the power of getting your hands in dirt were particularly insightful. The attendees loved the event and I highly recommend booking him."

"Marcus Bridgewater of Choice Forward talked to the Women at Microsoft Charlotte about the power of kindness, patience, and positivity all while teaching us about our plants! I woke up this morning with a renewed sense of energy and a calm, deeper breath. I feel like both myself and my plants would be better off if I listened to Garden Marcus daily. His insights and wisdom can lead to a literal breath of fresh air. Just ask your plants 😊 Thank you Garden Marcus! You truly are an inspiration."
