Why Gardening is Good for You


Is gardening really good for you? Well the evidence is in, YES!

We did a lot of digging and found a bunch of scientific evidence that supports the hypothesis of why gardening is good for you. It would appear from the evidence that the humble act of having green fingers will do some remarkable things for your health. Did you know that gardening could reduce the risk of hart attack or stroke by as much as 27%. It could also reduce your chance of obesity by as much as 62%. We were a little blown away by the statistics we found and we are sure you will be also. So what are you waiting for, start googling sheds for sale and get out into your garden sheds and start gardening!

    I didn’t need this article to know that gardening makes me feel better. My current work schedule allowed me to spend most of this summer working in my gardens. I have been gardening for many years and am never happier than when I am outside, digging, pruning, planting or picking!

      Thanks Judi, still I bet it gave you some interesting statistics to mull over. Like gardening could reduce the risk of hart attack or stroke by as much as 27% and it could also reduce your chance of obesity by as much as 62%.
