We love our gardens. We grow edibles, herbs and have fruit trees. But what we realize during this quarantine time, is how important gardening really is to life and wellness.
Gardening during a pandemic can be for everyone, regardless of whether you live in an apartment or on a 100-acre ranch.
Gardens during WWII supplied homes with fresh vegetables, fruits, and herbs, and today Pandemic Gardens can do the same.
It’s no secret gardening gets you out in the fresh air (while respecting social distancing), adds positive energy to your psyche, gives you something physical to do, and provides an activity that can involve the whole family.
Quarantine is perhaps the best time to get to know more about gardens – how to grow plants from seeds and create a truly local source of food, even if you live in a multi-story building.
Growing what you eat is pleasant and gives you some freedom from your daily routine, particularly during self-isolation. In addition to producing food, gardens can provide oxygen.
Gardening is calming. It’s been proven that physical interaction with living plants is good for our mental health. And couldn’t we all use a little more of that during this time?
