Intriguing benefits of gardeningBy Guest Blogger: Oliver JonesNo meal is as satisfying as one made from what you planted, cared for and watched grow to maturity. Also, some of us love fruits, but the thought of the number of preservatives and other chemicals sprayed on them from when they are on the farm to when they reach the stores could make one pass them. Luckily, gardening, whether large or small scale, gives you confidence in knowing the contents of what you are about to eat.Mostly, people view gardening in terms of the produces and they tend to limit gardening benefits to the yields. However, when looked at broadly, gardening has more to offer than just the healthy foods. Over time, studies have shown the health difference between people who live on farms and those who live in cities as well as the health benefits emanating from actual farming. And, you don’t even need to be a professional gardener, have large tracts of land or be in your garden daily to rip the benefits. Hobbyist gardeners rip just as many benefits as everyday gardeners. WonderlandGardens lists some of the intriguing benefits of gardening, and it’s an eye-opener on why we should spend some time in our gardens no matter how big or small they are.
