Gardening & Healthy Living

Our club was pleased to take part in the 6th Annual Mind, Body & Soul Health Fair. We were able to chat about the health benefits of gardening, and highlight the stress relieving possibilities of joining our October fundraiser vacation to tropical Costa Rica! The winner of our raffle, was an enthusiastic Linda Ravenhurst, who was thrilled to be taking home her personal herb garden.  And we hope that everyone who received Echinacea seeds, will enjoy these beautiful medicinal wildflowers in their own gardens.

Gardening is an excellent low-impact exercise, that everyone can do at their own pace while getting out in the fresh air. Just remember to stretch a little beforehand, and rotate activities, so you don’t overdo any particular muscle group.
