Did you know that gardening is good for you?
We know that the world can be a stressful place and while this project is ambitious, we know that many hands make light work!
* Through the sharing of knowledge, planting, watering, weeding, and food harvesting, we are forming connections within our community and surrounding area.
* We are able to provide nutrient dense, fresh food to our families.
* We are able to participate in the education of food growth, development and sustainability to people of a variety of ages.
And the benefits of gardening far exceed the food that is grown, the mouths that are fed and the connections you will make!
Gardening is also great for your health. Studies show that gardening helps you combat stress, is a mood booster, helps protect your memory as you get older, builds strength, promotes sleep, and helps your body fight diseases.
“Like other mindful practices, ecological restoration can be viewed as an act of reciprocity in which humans exercise their caregiving responsibility for the ecosystems that sustain them. We restore the land, and the land restores us.”
― Robin Wall Kimmerer, Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge, and the Teachings of Plants
