Gardening for Wellness

July 24, 2022

Tim's Yard Lounge Chair

People create and maintain gardens for different reasons: to grow food, to grow something beautiful, to express themselves. More than this, studies have shown that gardening can have a very positive effect on one’s mental health, and many people feel a spiritual connection to their gardens.


Gardening revives our spirit, fosters balance, celebrates joy, and welcomes overall wellness into our lives. Gardening can be food for the soul: horticultural therapy.


Join 630 CHED Garden Show hosts Morgan Webb and Jillian MacPhee to discuss the benefits of gardening on health and wellness. Guest caller Caitlin Larsen, proprietor of landscape design and garden maintenance business Garden of Weedin’, will convey her thoughts and experiences.
