Gardening is the act of returning to our most natural selves.
Never underestimate the healing power of a quiet moment among plants.
Why Do I Garden?
I grew up eating food made with vegetables and herbs from our garden and I knew that it was a tradition that I’d carry into adulthood. There are many reasons why I garden but the most important is that I believe it is revolutionary to learn how to grow your own food. This is a skill that I believe everyone should have and I want to learn as much as I can and pass it on to others. Like most people, I get sad when a plant struggles or dies in my care and I want to be the best plant mom that I can be.
Join me in this journey to learning more about green things and how to care for them.
Why Should You Garden?
Reap What You Sow
Gardening is a humbling experience. One where you often need to put in hard and time-consuming work. Where nature demands that you practice patience. But where you are also rewarded with the delicious fruits of your labor: vegetables, herbs, and more!
Reconnect with the Earth
Everything is serene as you work in absolute silence. You can feel the connection to the earth. You can feel the connection to the ancestors. This is nothing new. Gardening is the act of returning to our most natural selves. We are the stewards of this land that we inhabit and this comes with intrinsic responsibility. Through gardening, we take care of and give back to the earth. And we receive the earth’s bounty in return. This is the true essence of a symbiotic relationship.
Restore Peace and Serenity in Your Life
Research shows that gardening, or just simply having a plant in our homes or work spaces, is beneficial to both our mental and physical health.
The act of growing and tending to plants (and just being in green spaces in general) helps reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression. It’s a perfect way to cope with stress. On top of that, it encourages healthier eating habits, promotes more nutritious food selection, and cleans our air! You can’t go wrong with anything that improves your health and well being!
I grow plants for many reasons: to please my soul, to challenge the elements or to challenge my patience, for novelty, or for nostalgia, but mostly for the joy in seeing them grow.David Hobson
