The Giving Garden

Gardening delivers all sorts of expected benefits like exercise, fresh air, and affordable access to healthy fruits and vegetables.  Gardening also delivers surprise benefits like reducing stress and lowering the risk of dementia.

You know I love my garden where I can’t get enough of the home-grown tomatoes, grow organic strawberries, and plant purple coneflowers to attract butterflies and bees.  I also love the Giving Garden planted at the Scottsdale Civic Center Park.  Set along side one of the many fountains is a beautiful garden planted with edible items like basil, lettuce, and chives.  Seeing it looking so lovely in November made me long for spring in the Midwest so I can dig in the dirt at home.
