Effect of Gardening on Nature, Humans & Society
Gardening is good for a great many things. It can be good for your health, good for your soil, and good for the wildlife in your backyard. It’s a great way to relieve stress, to set goals for you, and to nurture something. On top of all that, growing your own produce is a great way to become more sustainable at home and to reduce your environmental impact. Gardening also happens to be a great hobby. It’s something that you can do season after season, year after year, and into your twilight years. This makes gardening a versatile hobby, as well as a healthy one. Gardening comes with a myriad of well-documented health benefits. The most obvious of these has to do with the fact that quite a bit of gardening is done outdoors. Exposure to sunlight increase your vitamin D, which is good for bones, teeth, and muscles. And speaking of muscles, gardening is a great form of low-impact exercise — high impact if you’re hefting huge pots or wheelbarrows of soil around. In terms of mental health, gardening has also been shown to decrease the risk of dementia and as a type of therapy for those already suffering from it, according to a study published by the journal Psychiatry Investig. This might have to do with the mental health benefits we experience just being in nature. Gardens, by virtue of the human-made nature of their construction, allow us a means to connect to nature in a sort of self-determined way. Gardens are important to the planet because, despite being human-made, they represent a natural environment. Plants and trees grow there, taking in carbon and releasing oxygen. The roots of these plants stabilize the soil and filter water. Municipal gardens and national parks become safe havens for all manner of wild creatures that might have been otherwise displaced by the endless urban sprawl of the modern world. Birds, bugs, and bees — especially honey bees — are essential to the lifecycle of the world at large. Your health, your frame of mind, your community, and the environment — if those are not enough reasons for why gardening is important, we have a few more to give you. Gardening can also be important for your wallet, nutrition, and environmental footprint. On top of all that, gardening is a great hobby that you can share with your children Teaching them to nurture a living thing and to be responsible for their own segment of the environment are great lessons to pass down.
