I recently became interested in eating healthy foods. I have been thinking of having a garden. Then a friend told me about a place where there is a community garden sponsored by church. I was able to rent a small plot. I was very excited because I have a garden of my own.
My garden is providing me with a lot of good vegetables like tomatoes, chili peppers, green leaves (kale, arugula etc.). Also my garden provided me with food that is pesticide free.
My garden provides a connection with nature that helps me to relax. When I’m working in the garden I forget about things that are bothering me. I was able to connect with other gardeners and make friends.
My garden provided me with a lot of exercise that every gardener needs to do like planting, watering, weeding and general care.
It has been fun and rewarding to care for my garden and I am very grateful for all that my garden has given me.
