Benefits of gardening

As Canada finally catches up with spring this year, it’s finally time to get growing!

You don’t have to live on an acreage (or even have a yard) to reap the benefits of what you sow when it comes to planting. There are plenty of opportunities for everyone to get their garden on: from windowsill herb gardens, to patio planter boxes and flower beds, to community garden plots. Whether you’re planting flowers or food, gardening can be a physically and mentally rewarding activity for the whole family.
From muscle strengthening to mind calming, the joys of getting out in the garden will definitely grow on you. So grab some seeds and some fabulous gardening gloves and start digging.
