Promoting Health and Well-being Through Gardening
Gardening has many health benefits . . .
. . . from improving diet and increasing physical activity to reducing the effects of chronic health conditions such as arthritis, depression, cardiovascular disease, dementia, and diabetes. It's also a great way to connect with friends and family. It's "good for body and mind," according to the American Public Health Association, "and can be enjoyed by people of all ages. Plus, you get to eat the delicious fruits, vegetables, and herbs that you grow. So, grab your tools and get in the dirt!"
