Benefits of Gardening for Mental Health


Carrots just pulled from the earth

Gardening is a popular activity for improving mental and physical health.  It gets your body moving and keep your brain active. Some doctors are recommending gardening and getting involved in tending community allotments, to help in the national fight against obesity. Connecting with nature, and gardening in particular has a myriad of mental health benefits including lessened depression, improved creativity, and more. As more people engage with planting and begin to experience its benefits, we only plan to see the trend become increasingly popular.

Growing one’s own food has always conveyed feelings of pride and self-sufficiency in times of hardship (think back to the “Victory Gardens” of WWII). Growing fruit, vegetables, or herbs from seed is also a great way to teach children where food comes from and how to grow their own. A practical but fun and nurturing way to educate children on the science of plants.
