We are always looking for new enthusiastic members to join our gardening group. This year we have expanded our growing space and have been learning so much about how to get the most out of the space we have.  We have also been on trips together to the new RHS site to get some new ideas!

What are the benefits of Gardening?

Community gardens foster feelings of connection!

School gardens, family gardens, and community gardens are sprouting up everywhere. The reason these small local gardens are flourishing may have as much to do with human interaction as it does with the produce.

 

In one study students who participated in school gardens took photos of their work and shared what they experienced. Students reported that the skills they learned and relationships they formed gave them a sense of personal well-being.

Gardening invites you to get outside, interact with other gardeners, and take charge of your own need for exercise, healthy food, and beautiful surroundings.

 

If you’re digging, hauling, and harvesting, your physical strength, heart health, weight, sleep, and immune systems all benefit. And those are just the physiological outcomes. Gardening can also cultivate feelings of empowerment, connection, and creative calm.
