Gardening, in one form or another, is often described as one of the most popular hobby in the United States. And rightly so. Involvement by people in gardening activities help promote healthy habits. At a time when Americans are overweight and under-exercised more than ever before, consider that a 150-pound person working in the garden will burn approximately 350 calories per hour. That’s roughly equivalent to doing low-impact aerobics, playing softball, pulling a cart while playing golf, walking at a very brisk pace, or playing vigorously with children. Of course, consuming homegrown vegetables is good for health as well. Fresh vegetables are loaded with vitamins, antioxidants, and fiber, all of which play a role in cancer prevention and general good health. And when you grow your own vegetables, you know exactly how they were grown and where they originated–issues of food safety and security that are becoming more and more important to our society.
