What People Love About Living In The Garden

For many of us, gardening is just a simple task. But for many of us it’s also a deep form of happiness. Learn more about a life of joy while making a difference in our community in this video.

I’ll start with a simple question. Does gardening bring you happiness? It often does. It does. It does. It does. It does. It does. It does. It does. It does. It does. It does. It does. It does. It does. It does. It does. It does. It does. It does. It does. It does. It does. It does. It does. It does. It does. It does. It does. It does. It does. It does. Does gardening bring happiness? No, no, no, no, no, no, no. Does gardening bring you happiness? It does. It does.

This is one of the first things I learned growing up in the gardens of my family. Here I am, a child with a garden at home, playing in the soil. It’s a beautiful, green place that is full of life. I’m filled with joy. Happiness can be found in almost anything, but to actually experience it in a real, physical environment is extremely fulfilling. It’s often the first thought that comes to mind when you’re contemplating gardening, and it’s not just something you dream of doing, it’s something that is something you need to do for your own well-being. You need this job. You need to be able to grow food. You need to be outside.

So gardening brings you happiness. Happiness is a form of joy. Joy is the basic human need for happiness. And although it’s often difficult to find a tangible sense of happiness at home in the comfort of our own homes, gardening can easily bring that happiness into your very being. I can look outdoors, and the sight of flowers, the scent of flowers, and remember moments with my neighbors and friends. I can appreciate the beauty of nature as well.

There are countless joys that I experienced while I was a gardener growing up. I was able to explore a beautiful, untouched space, and I could make a positive impact within it. It was a chance to learn and to grow in a way that I never felt like I was ready to. It was a place of reflection and learning. I learned how to take care of myself, how to plan, how to see what plants needed attention, how to take care of them and how to keep them healthy. The ability to grow something that is healthy and hearty and delicious, and to bring that food back so that you can share it with others.

But more than anything about being a gardener, it was simply an opportunity to work with the environment, to change it for the better. I learned to appreciate the beauty of water, land, and sunlight more than I ever have. I learned how to make sure I had enough space for a comfortable life. I learned how to make sure my food was fresh, how to understand soil conservation techniques, and how to grow fresh, local vegetables. I learned more about gardening myself than I ever thought possible. And I learned how to take care of plants. It was something I truly loved doing, but something so many people have never, ever had the opportunity to learn. This is something I wanted to share with everyone I could, which is why I started GrowNY .

One of the most joyous aspects of gardening is when you grow something. Maybe it’s a flower, a small herb, or a nut or a fruit. But all of the time, all of the places, you go with gardening, you’ll grow something. Maybe it’s one of your favorite and most reliable staples. Maybe it’s something that you’ve always dreamed of growing – something rare, but just as delicious, nutritious, and just as fun to eat as any other type. Maybe it’s something that you’ve learned is truly wonderful.

All of the best things are made with love.
