Working our way backwards…day 27

50 Reasons to Eat & Grow Local Food

Reason #27:

Gardening of all kinds helps us get some of that much-needed daily exercise. It may not do much for your cardiovascular system most of the time, but unlike a gym workout, you’ll get plenty of fresh air, psychological benefits to seeing and breathing in nature, as well as exercising a multitude of different muscles in a real-world situation (as opposed to the unnatural environment of the gymbot). And all this with a real-life goal of growing some of your own fruit, nuts and veggies. Gardening gives focus, a pattern and purpose to your exercise regime. You can always go for a nice brisk walk or run afterwards.
