It’s good for your brain!
UCLA did brain scan studies, and they found gardening cuts the risk of dementia in half! It can even help reverse mild memory loss that’s already begun. It’s down to the combination of physical and mental effort that’s required for gardening. It boosts gray matter in the areas of the brain linked to memory and cognitive skills. So if you love gardening, know that it loves you back. Now start that indoor flower or herb garden and look forward to Spring for an outdoor garden project!
