Why you should garden.
1: Since you grow everything by yourself, everything is organic and safe to eat. So that means no more pesticides and other harmful ingredients that can be found from big companies.
2: Growing a garden actually helps the environment because it cuts down pesticides, pollution, and reduces fuel because you don't need to transport it.
3: Gardening improves your physical health because of the exercise you get. Studies also show that being exposed to dirt develops stronger immune systems and are less likely to get allergies.
4: Gardening also improves your mental health because it provides a time away from technology. And studies show that when we are using are phones, we're just devoting our brain power towards "directed attention", which is bad for your brain long-term. And gardening can help by relaxing and releasing the stress and tension.
