Here are 8 Benefits of Gardening in your own backyard:

1. Exercise
You can get as much exercise as you want or you can also do it while seated and with very little work

2. Sunshine & Fresh Air
Spending time outdoors in the sunlight prompts our skin to produce Vitamin D. while being outdoors improves our overall sense of physical wellbeing. But be careful to protect yourself from the harmful rays of the sun

3. Mental Health
Our brains are soothed and stimulated by spending time in nature. Research has shown that being surrounded by nature lowers anxiety and depression, helps to manage stress, and more.

4. Save Money

Pinetree Garden Seeds makes it possible to plant an entire garden for less than $50. And, of course, the joys of growing something can found by planting just one $2 packet of seeds.

Planting a garden is a great way to get the highest quality, organic, seasonal fruits and vegetables at the lowest possible price.

5. Good Eating
Fresh-picked flavor also signals a higher, richer nutritional content. Every bite you take from the garden gives you and your family the best possible nutrition.

6. Build Community
Gardeners find themselves chatting with neighbors walking by or stopping by their homes with a bouquet of cut flowers or extra summer squash to share. They meet new friends when they sign up for—or start!—their local community garden. Gardeners swap tips at the hardware store or nursery and log on to chat groups or message boards to share challenges or cuttings.

Gardening with family also builds that community.

7. Save The Earth

Plants absorb C02 in the air that contributes to global warming and converts it to lifegiving, planet-protecting oxygen, so adding plants to the planet is always an environmental plus.

Gardens also decrease pollution by reducing the amount of food that needs to be transported long distances by truck or plane.

Gardeners compost organic waste, keeping it out of landfills.

8. Fun

Yes, it can be a lot of work but the sights, the sounds even the work make it fun.

These are just the highlights. For the in-depth article: click for details
