Gardening and Health

Gardening gives elders a harvest of health,

Gardening helps older men and women reap more than flowers, fruits, and vegetables -- it benefits them physically as well, researchers report. In a small study, 14 gardeners between 63 and 86 years old reported an average of 33 hours of gardening during a typical week in May, and 15 hours each week during June and July.
