National Gardening Association- National Garden Month
Join the National Gardening Association and celebrate the joys and benefits of gardening this month – National Garden Month.
Gardeners know and now research confirms that gardening is good for our minds, bodies, and spirits. You’ll lower your blood pressure and elevate your mood when you get out and garden.
Make this the year to get involved. If you have never gardened, try growing a container of flowers or a tomato and herbs in a pot.
And if you are an experienced gardener consider inspiring someone, young or old, to pick up a trowel and dig in. You’ll find lots of pleasure when you see your garden through a fresh set of eyes.
Lack space to plant? No worries. Rent a community garden. Many municipalities, botanical gardens and extension services provide space for people to grow their own food. Or help green your community by getting involved with the tree board, beautification or other greening committee.
A bit more information: Get the whole family involved in gardening this month. Grow a grass head, start new plants from old or build a terrarium from two-liter soda bottles. Visit my website for directions for these and other gardening activities.
