Plant a Garden

Want a fun and simple way to give back to the community you live in and the earth that surrounds you? Are you interested in an activity that could bring your family closer together? Are you looking for a new way to relax? Then why not consider taking advantage of the nature in your own backyard by planting a garden?


The produce you grow in your garden will be fresher and healthier than produce you find at the grocery store. Growing your own vegetables and fruit will certainly take some effort, but in the long run it will likely save you money, and a trip to the grocery store. Even if you choose to grow non-edible plants like flowers in your garden, you, your family and your neighbors will appreciate the extra beauty in the neighborhood.

Step It Up

Make planting and maintaining a garden an activity your whole family can participate in. Besides being a fun way to bond with your family, giving your kids responsibility when it comes to growing their food will definitely make them want to eat it. Even the pickiest kid won’t be able to resist the peas he or she helped water, or the lettuce he or she picked!

Keep It Simple

If you’re intimidated by starting an entire garden from scratch, try planting with a few familiar and easy-to-grow vegetables, like squash or tomatoes. And if you don’t have the time or the physical ability to plant your own garden, consider lending or donating part of your land or yard to someone who would like to garden but doesn’t have their own space.
