Time to Garden

Learn something new about gardening.  Even if you don’t have a green thumb, check out the internet or local library to learn how to grow something new this season.  You will save money, eat healthier, and get some sunshine while you are at it.  Here’s an idea to get you started: http://www.ehow.com/how_110539_start-vegetable-garden.html

If you don’t feel like you can garden on your property due to lack of space or soil, try potting your plants.  Also, community gardens offer everyone an opportunity to garden and enjoy your neighbors, even if you don’t have your own property to garden.  There are many organizations that can help you get involved, such as the American Community Garden Association that will help you find a community garden in your local area.  Visit http://www.communitygarden.org/ to learn more.
