Get your head out of the gutter and into the soil!
Here are 3 reasons why gardening is super healthy for your mind, body and spirit!
1- Higher Self-Esteem
Even a single session helps you feel productive and purposeful!
2- Improves Focus
Doing a single task like weeding or digging is meditative, which can give your brain practice in focusing!
More and more research shows that children who garden (play in dirt) develop healthier immune systems. Experts suspect grown-ups get an immune boost, too!

Ah yes, spring is finally here. The forsythia is in bloom and the daffodils are brightening our days with their cheerful presence. Everything is coming back to life. It is miraculous. Underneath our feet is the earth that supports the growth of these plants and all life on earth. Soil, or what can be referred to as earth must be healthy in order for our plants to thrive and grace us with there beauty. Unfortunately, many people have lost the connection with nature and are destroying our soil with chemicals like herbicides, pesticides and insecticides. Then feeding it with toxic fertilizers. The earth is alive, and just like our minds must start out with a healthy foundation in order to grow strong, vibrant and healthy. Compost, using natural alternatives, (and there are many out there) to toxic ones that destroy all of the micronutrients that support the infrastructure of our soil. Like our bodies and minds we too are made up of this soil. Healthy soil supports a healthy community. Like above so below. Pick up some soil today and feel it, smell it,bless it, thank it and support it. Your life depends on healthy soil. Reconnect with your roots.
