The Best Reasons to Start Your Own Garden


Gardening is a great hobby. If you don’t already have a garden, it’s well worth starting one. Why? Here are ten reasons:

Save money

Here are some of the ways you can save money:

  • Save money on groceries. After all, you’re going to be growing your own food! You won’t need to buy any fruits or veggies from the supermarket anymore.
  • Save money on medicines and vitamins. You used to be able to buy those over-the-counter at the pharmacy for much less than non-GMO organic versions from a health food store, but when they were legalized in Canada last year, prices went up across the board so now it might be worth it for some people just to start growing their own instead of buying them off-shelf!
  • Save money on supplements: same idea as above—you can grow your own herbs now that they’re legal in Canada and then make tea out of them instead of having them made by someone else who might charge extra just because they know what they’re doing better than others do (which isn’t always true).

It’s good for your health

You might not think of gardening as an exercise, but it can be. Gardening is a great way to get your hands dirty, and it gives you an opportunity to get outside and enjoy nature. You can also use gardening as a way to relax after work or school. In fact, many people find that they feel more calm after spending some time in their garden.

You don’t even have to go far from home! Many people have started community gardens in their neighborhoods where neighbors come together and create a space for themselves where they can grow fresh produce. These types of gardens are becoming popular because they provide an opportunity for members of the neighborhood community who don’t have much space or ability (both physically and financially) on their own property—and they’re fun! Community gardens make it easier than ever before for people who want access them

It helps with stress

Gardening is a great way to relax and get in touch with nature. There’s something about the dirt, the sun, and the plants that makes people feel more relaxed. It’s also a great way to get some exercise too! Gardening can improve your sleep and mood by reducing stress levels. If you’re getting enough vitamin D from sunlight during gardening then this will help you feel healthier overall too!

Fresh produce is better for you

Having a garden is also beneficial because there are more nutrients in fresh produce. If you’re eating fruits and vegetables that have been picked days before, you probably won’t get as many nutrients from them as you would from those produced locally.

Another reason why having a garden is great for your health is that it doesn’t use any chemicals. Most commercial farms use chemicals on their crops to keep them safe from pests and disease. Some of these chemicals include pesticides and herbicides which can be dangerous if consumed by humans or animals in large quantities (including pets).

You get to spend time outside

You get to spend time outside.

People are often surprised when I tell them that I’ve been gardening for over 15 years, but it’s true! My parents had a small vegetable garden when I was growing up, and we spent many warm summer nights working in the garden together.

Gardening is one of my favorite pastimes because it gives me an opportunity to get some exercise while enjoying the outdoors. There’s nothing better than digging through soil with your hands and getting some sun on your face while you work hard on something productive!

It can be hard to find time for yourself these days, especially if you’re working full-time and raising kids or taking care of other loved ones at home (like pets). Gardening allows me to spend quality time alone with myself—you know, just thinking about life; reconnecting with whom I am as an individual; finding peace within myself—and giving back instead of focusing solely on myself all day long (as most people do).

You get to meet great people

Another reason you should start a garden is that you get to meet great people. I’m thinking about the people who have helped me with my garden or just those who are interested in gardening as a hobby.

One of my favorite things about growing food is getting to meet other gardeners, whether they’re an experienced gardener or someone who has never grown anything before. It’s always fun to compare notes and talk about what we’ve been doing in our gardens, whether it’s something simple like planting seeds or something more complex like transplanting plants from one place to another.

Another thing I really love about having a vegetable garden is that it gets me outside more often than I would be otherwise—and it gives me an excuse for going outside because there are so many things that need doing! Not only does this help keep me fit and healthy but also helps keep my spirits up too since being outdoors always makes me feel better than being indoors (unless maybe if there’s some good Netflix on).

It’s good for the environment

  • It reduces the need for pesticides.
  • It reduces the need for fertilizer.
  • It reduces the need for irrigation.
  • It reduces the need for transportation, which can reduce greenhouse gases in your area that are released when you transport goods from far away places to where they’re needed or sold locally.

It’s easy

It’s easy to start.

If you grow your own garden, the process of starting it can be as easy or complex as you want it to be. You may choose to start with a small container on your balcony or patio, or plant an entire backyard garden with every vegetable and fruit that your family loves. Either way, growing vegetables and fruits is something that anyone can do!

It’s easy to maintain.

Once you get past the initial planting stage of your veggie garden, there’s very little maintenance needed after that point (except for watering). If you have the space for a large veggie patch in your backyard then that is even better! Once the plants begin producing fruit or vegetables then all you need to do is harvest what they produce; no fertilizing required at all – nature does this part herself! It’s also great news because this means less chemicals being introduced into our bodies when we eat these foods too!
