IMPROVE THEIR OVERALL HEALTH
Gardening has long been known to be beneficial to human health. Besides the obvious reason of producing healthy fruits and vegetables, gardening can improve your immune system and mental health simply by playing in the soil.
We've all heard the saying, " a little dirt never hurt anyone" when babies or young kids shove handfuls into their mouth. The fact is, dirt or soil is actually very beneficial to your immune system. Our gut microbiome, and therefore our immune system, is heavily influenced by beneficial microorganisms found in the food we eat and the environments were exposed to.
