“A garden is a grand teacher. It teaches patience and careful watchfulness; it teaches industry and thrift; above all, it teaches entire trust.”
— Gertrude Jekyll
Celebrate and go outdoors and get your hands dirty by planting some flowers, a tree, or grow your favorite vegetables. If you don’t have a space to do gardening visit the community garden in your area. Gardeners benefit by spending time with nature and unplugging digitally. Spending time in the garden also provides physical activity and an opportunity to be in nature.
