2021 National Horticultural Therapy Week: Being Outdoors and Around Plants

March 19th, 2021

As the 2021 National Horticultural Therapy Week comes to a close, for many, it’s really about gardening, growing plants, and being in nature. The many benefits of being outdoors and around plants includes greater happiness and joy, higher levels of reduced stress and anxiety, increased self-esteem and mood, connecting with the world and others, and relaxation. Red Wiggler Community Farm is proud to be a part of the community where people are empowered and can work, learn, and grow. Check out this video from July 2017 of John, one of our Growers, who loves being outdoors and growing plants.
