Take a hike...

Updated: Mar 24, 2022

Getting outside and surrounding yourself in nature can be an instant mood booster for gardeners of all ages. This week for Gardener Anna & Gardener Aidan's spring break we decided to hit the trails and take some hikes! While a light hike offers a wonderful exercise for kids, it also gives them an opportunity to explore nature, build balance by traversing over rocky terrain and is also a wonderful way to boost self-confidence!

According to a study conducted by researchers at Stanford University, they found: "The simple act of hiking can help release chemicals in your child's brain that will help him or her to feel less anxious."
