Gardening: A Way of Life

by Raisa Musadeq

What is gardening? Most people refer to gardening as an activity where you grow and nurture plants. Is that what gardening is? Is that the only thing gardening does? Gardening isn't just an activity where you grow and take care of the plants you grow, there is much more to gardening than people assume. When people  garden, they help the environment and us humans mentally and physically.  How does gardening help the environment you may ask? Gardening creates a healthier environment and is more beneficial to the environment. This is because gardening cleans the air we breathe. The plants clean the carbon dioxide and other harmful toxins in the air. It also helps the environment by attracting insects, gives us a chance to recycle, and is an opportunity participate in nature or conservation projects.  If you have the ability to help the environment, why not do it? Other than helping the environment, gardening also helps us in many ways. When someone gardens, it helps them relieve stress, it's considered a type of exercise, since it gets your blood moving, it helps your brain and it's a way to help your nutrition. It's a proven fact that the food you grow yourself is the freshest and healthiest food you can eat. If you can help yourself in so many different ways, why not do it?  By gardening, you're improving the environment and helping yourself in so many different ways. Make a change. Take an initiative to make a difference in the world we live in and make it a better place.
