Pride and self-esteem are important ingredients to fight against depression, for example.
In fact, studies show that people who garden feel proud about their work and what it looks like in front of their house or commerce. So, feelings like satisfaction and well-being are then increased. According to the same research, when citizens take part in a beautification project, they feel increased respect for their town; this positive feeling is reflected throughout the community.
Gardening has huge benefits for our mood. Feeling sad? Go gardening!
