Top ten reasons to start a garden In our hurry-up, busy world filled with electronic gadgets such as iPhones, tablets and android devic- es, where does gardening lit in, asked a University of Illinois Extension horticul- ture educator. "The gadgets of garden- ing aren't flashy - a shovel, pruners, hoses, and bags of seeds," said Martha Smith. "All are simple yet prac- tical and guaranteed to bring satisfaction and sus- tenance." A National Garden Bu- reau survey asked garden- ers why they garden and their inspiring answers are: Garden for safe, healthy food: Reports of foodborne illnesses and contamination in foods have been widely publi- cized. Interest in organic gardening and the avail- ability of organic produce has increased. Consum- ers are aware of additives and preservatives found in processed foods. An easy solution is to grow your own fruits and vegetables. It's estimated that during World War II 20 million ho- meowners had victory gar- dens that produced close to 40 percent of the fresh pro- duce consumed in the Unit- ed States. Start your own garden and know that the foods you and your family eat are fresh and safe. Garden for exercise: You can get all the exer- cise you need in your own backyard for free. Garden- ing activities provide both cardio and aerobic exercise. Studies show that an hour of moderate gardening can burn up to 300 calories for women, almost 400 calories for men. Mowing the grass is like taking a vigorous walk, bending and stretch- ing to plant a garden com- pares to an exercise class, and hauling plants and soil is similar to weightlifting. As we age, gardening can help reduce osteoporosis. If you have physical limi- tations, there are adaptive tools to help you get the job done. Garden for beauty: A garden can enhance any outdoor setting. A house with a nice yard is a plea- sure to look at and satisfy- ing to live in. Simply adding a container of colorful flow- ers to a patio brightens your spirits. Trees and shrubs not only provide color and shade but shelter for birds and wildlife. Think of the garden as another room to be enjoyed whether you are inside outside the house. Garden to learn: You can learn by reading and you can learn by doing. Get- ting out and working with plants builds your garden- ing knowledge. Gardeners find that the more they learn about plants and gar- dening, the more they want to know. Plant problems lead to learning solutions. Removing a problem plant allows you the opportunity to try something else. Garden to make mon- ey: The love of plants can lead to a rewarding job at a local garden center or a large landscape firm or to owning your own business. Whether growing flowers, vegetables, or herbs, there are opportunities to sell your products at local farm- ers markets or craft shows. Landscaping an investment property can add to the re- sale value by as much as 15 percent. This "curb appeal" could make the difference between your house sell- ing versus the house next door. Garden to meet peo- ple: Gardeners love to share their gardens and their knowledge. Garden- ing is a great way to expand your social circle. Whether it's with a neighbor who lives next door or an inter- net pal on the other side of the world, gardeners love to talk about plants. Meeting other gardeners through garden clubs and sharing surplus plants is an easy way to share information, ask questions, and get in- volved. Garden to be creative: Gardening provides an out- let for creative and artis- tic expression. The serene contemplative mood of a Japanese garden or the romantic feel of a cottage garden - let your creativity flow. Try something new every season. How about a new annual or a new spring-blooming bulb? Who knows, it may become your all-time favorite plant. Garden to win: For people with a competi- tive streak, gardening is a friendly way to show off their skills. County and state fairs provide an op- portunity to show everyone the giant pumpkin, beauti- ful bountiful beans, or the perfect zinnia. 4H clubs promote gardening, offer- ing educational opportuni- ties for kids and a healthy avenue for recognition. Garden for emotion- al needs: Gardens play an important part in our well-being. A garden might serve as a tranquil retreat or private escape from the demands of everyday life. A beautiful bouquet can lift the spirits. Pulling weeds can be a great stress reliever. A healthy harvest provides a sense of achieve- ment and feelings of suc- cess. Gardening builds con- fidence and self-esteem. Garden for lasting memories: Gardening is a great activity that can be shared with children and grandchildren - the gar- deners of tomorrow. Mem- ories of past gardens and gardeners are cherished. Help build these memories for the next generation. Today's kids are missing the joy of cutting a bouquet of flowers for their mom or tasting the sweetness of a cherry tomato picked right from the plant in Grandpa's garden. "Whatever your reason - get out and garden," Smith said. "Turn off the televi- sion and put down that electronic gadget. Don't tell yourself you don't have the time. Find the time and en- joy." Accepting paver orders The Trenton Tumble- weeds Garden Club is ac- cepting orders for pavers until Tuesday, May 13. The pavers are in the walkway surrounding the Education Garden in the park. The pavers can be a memorial or they can be placed in honor of a person or event. Orders can be sent to Lois Roach at 406 N. Dates, Trenton. There is room for three lines of engraving with fourteen characters per line (a space counts as a character as does punctua- tion). If you have questions, please contact Lois at 224- 7603. These orders will be giv- en to the engraver by the end of May. You will be con- tacted when the engraving is finished and a dedication service is scheduled. Beginning Genealogy class The Kaskaskia College Community Education De- partment will offer a "Be- ginning Genealogy" class at the KC Crisp Technol- ogy Center.
