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.
