Benefits of Gardening

Did you know that gardening has physical, mental and emotional benefits?
Research shows that gardening can:
•    exercise all major muscle groups
•    reduce weight gain
•    improve sleep
•    improve brain function
•    reduce stress/anxiety
•    reduce depression & improve mood
•    increase self-esteem. 

By being part of a community garden, you can also experience the friendship and support of like-minded companions. And you can take home some of the beautiful organic produce we harvest.
