Gardening “Just Do It”:

Whether your patch is large or small, a raised bed, community garden, or window box, gardening is good for you.


A strong recommendation is to use gardening gloves that are made from bamboo fiber that allows the hands to stay cool and comfortable while protecting the palm.  This will also keep dirt from accumulating under nails.  These unwanted deposits can be consumed while eating and can cause stomach and other health issues.
