 A Healthier You...
Plant a Garden for a Healthier You

1. Ensure nutrient-rich produce


It goes without saying that it's far easier to know exactly what's in your food if you grow it yourself. By spending a few extra dollars up front for organic soil and fertilizer, you'll ensure healthy, organic produce for your kitchen and you may even save some cash on store-bought organics in the long-run.


2. Get happy


Most of the wellness benefits of gardening center around giving you a daily excuse to get outside. Studies show a disturbing decrease in nature-based activity among Americans - which means a great deal of us are missing out on the health perks Mother Nature has to offer.


3. Boost Vitamin D levels

Fact: Most Americans are Vitamin D deficient. Vitamin D is often known as the "sunshine vitamin," and studies show that it may have protective effects against a laundry list of illnesses, including heart disease, stroke, osteoporosis and cancer.


4. Heal faster

If you're under the weather, research shows that a little time in the sun may do you good. A 2005 University of Pittsburgh study found that exposure to natural sunlight actually reduced the length of hospitalization in some patients, decreased mortality rates and also helped with pain management.

5. Think more about your food

When you commit time, effort and money to caring for your plants, you naturally feel a stronger connection to the food they produce than something you just plucked off a grocery store shelf.
