Celebrate National Gardening Week
Gardening is good for the mind, body and spirit, so let’s celebrate National Gardening Week by sharing this healthful and fun hobby with others.
The Royal Horticulture Society started National Gardening Week in 2011. The goal is to beautify communities, neighborhoods, green spaces and the environment through gardening. The 2015 theme is “Start Something Beautiful.”
You can start something beautiful with your family or a few friends. Organize a seed swap or plant exchange. Or have a Round Robin Garden Clean up. It’s a great way to visit with friends while sprucing up each other’s landscapes.
Get involved with your community. See if your local Tree Board or Beautification Committee needs help on their board or special projects.
Or introduce a friend or neighbor to gardening. Help them plant a few containers or start some plants from seeds.
A bit more information: And don’t forget the youngsters in your life. Give them their own garden space or container to plant and tend. Gardening helps with creativity, focus and their studies.
