Research says Gardening Can Promote Better Mental Health

University of Florida scientists found that gardening activities lowered stress, anxiety and depression in healthy women who attended twice-weekly gardening classes. The idea of using gardening to promote better health and wellbeing — called therapeutic horticulture — has been around since the 19th century. The answer might be found in the important role of plants in human evolution and the rise of civilization.
