National Gardening Exercise Day is June 6th

Each year, National Gardening Exercise Day is celebrated on June 6th throughout the United States. It is a great way to get the word out about how gardening provides numerous benefits, including helping care for our planet, providing a relaxing and satisfying hobby, and getting exercise. Yes, gardening does provide exercise and here’s how: There is a lot of bending and up and down movement that looks – and feels – a lot like squats.
