National Gardening Exercise Day is June 6th

Each year, National Gardening Exercise Day is celebrated on June 6th throughout the United States. It is a great way to get the word out about how gardening provides numerous benefits, including helping care for our planet, providing a relaxing and satisfying hobby, and getting exercise. Yes, gardening does provide exercise and here’s how: There is a lot of bending and up and down movement that looks – and feels – a lot like squats. The movement involved in digging, planting, pulling weeds, and cutting also involves various muscles that are moving and stretching. Depending on how large your garden is you may also have fruit trees or other opportunities that involve climbing ladders, so you have an outdoor “stairmaster” machine. Even if you don’t have your own garden or space for creating one, you can participate in local Atlanta gardening clubs or community gardens to get the most out of this great form of exercise. It is a good way to exercise for people of all ages! Helping Your Garden Grow Our Atlanta flower shops offer many ways to help your garden grow. For example, we have many green plants and blooming plants that you can transplant into your [...]
