Lack of time may be the number one thing that stops people from enjoying gardening, and it’s something I get asked about regularly.

In episode 009 I share a few simple ways to grow food in small spaces, and mentioned that a lot time and space were two things most people thought was needed to grow a thriving garden…and maybe money too!

But you don’t need a lot of these, you just need a few basic ideas and simple sustainable techniques to grow and enjoy gardening.

A few years ago I was inspired to write an article on this topic, after reading research for my Horticultural Therapy studies, on the health benefits from just 30 minutes, a few times a week in the garden.

I wanted to share a list of many activities that could be completed in just 30 minutes of gardening, or relaxing, time.

You’ll find the full article here - http://soiltosupper.com/just-30-minutes-in-the-garden-you-can/

There are many wonderful things that you can enjoy in the garden and in this episode I share a few suggestions, including;

  • Propagating new plants
  • Weeding your garden
  • Planting seedlings
  • Harvesting a meal or some fresh herbs
  • Planting a tree, or two
  • Creating a compost pile
  • Fertilising plants
  • Cut a bunch of bananas
  • Watering your garden

These all improve physical and psychological wellbeing and a perfect for any age or ability.

I’ve mentioned these links to access for more information…

 

I hope you enjoyed this episode and you’re now inspired to head outdoors and enjoy a relaxing time in your garden…amongst a busy day!

Thanks for joining me in The Wellbeing Garden, see you again next time,
