Hey gardeners...did you know that reading is one of our favorite gardening tools? Reading can be extremely beneficial for gardeners of all ages. It is a wonderful way to help develop social and emotional skills, it expands our vocabulary, helps build our self-confidence, encourages empathy and cognitive thinking, and promotes a safe way to explore strong emotions.
A 2009 study at the University of Sussex found that reading can reduce stress by up to 68%. It works better and faster than other relaxation methods, such as listening to music or drinking a hot cup of tea.
This summer we would love for all our gardener friends to join the You Are a Gardener® Summer 2022 Book Club! All you have to do is download our book club forms, read as many books as you can & fill out the sheets, send us a picture of your progress and we will send you some free Gardener Goodies! Grab a stack of books and dig in!
Our You Are a Gardener® Summer 2022 Book Club is a wonderful gardening tool for the whole family to enjoy this summer. A weekly family trip to the library is a fun way to get the entire family to participate!
