Grounded in Health

Most peo­ple say they gar­den for fun and re­lax­ation, but did you know it’s good for your health and fit­ness?

The av­er­age gar­dener burns about 300 calo­ries an hour; builds lean, strong mus­cle mass and low­ers the risk of heart dis­ease, can­cer, di­a­betes and high blood pres­sure.
