Summer Activity to Try: Gardening

Whether you’re stressed out from your job or internship or bored sitting at home, take advantage of your summer break from school by adopting a great new hobby: gardening.  If you live in the suburbs and have a lawn, it won’t be too hard to ripen that green thumb.  If you’re from the city, look into urban agriculture nearby or maybe even visit a farm.

Gardening is perfect for those of you who are working long hours- especially indoors- because it will get you outside and allow you to breathe some fresh air (and catch up on some vitamin D!).  Also, it is highly relaxing, so prepare for all that stress from work to just melt away…

If you’re mostly spending your summer break at home, then what better way to get outdoors and experience something new? And who knows…if you end up really enjoying it, maybe your new hobby will come back with you to school in the fall! Maybe you’ll even get your friends into gardening too!

Visit your local plant exchange and ask the employees about which plants would grow best in your area.  Personally, I really enjoy growing herbs because they smell good and you can eat a lot of them.  Nothing like some fresh basil from the garden! Gardening is the perfect way to feel like you’re doing something productive and beneficial to yourself during your summer break!  Happy Planting!
