Gardening is a great way to get outside, be more active and improve your quality of life. In fact, gardening has been proven to have a number of health benefits, for both our physical and mental health.
Unfortunately, not everyone is able to take advantage of outdoor gardening. For some, limited mobility or lack of access to outdoor space hinders their ability to take up this beneficial hobby.
