Going Green

HomeLifestyleGoing Green

It’s time to get down and dirty.

Planting flowers, veggies, and spices can stimulate cognitive function and memory. Gardening can enhance mood and reduce symptoms of depression. From touching soil to smelling flowers, playing in the dirt can be therapeutic. And just like humans, if they’re not growing, they’re dying.

Exposure to sunlight while gardening helps the body produce Vitamin D which is essential for good brain health and skin. Explore opportunities to learn more about getting dirty, or join a group at the Garden Club of Jacksonville.

The Garden Club of Jacksonville is located at 1005 Riverside Avenue along the St. Johns directly across the street from River & Post, one of Jacksonville’s popular dining hang outs. For upcoming events contact them at (904) 355-4224, or by emailing info@gardenclubjax.com.
