AGELESS GARDENS S3E3: Gardens are used to maintain emotional balance. A writer advocates for ‘grief gardening’ to help people through loss. A 90-year old gardener continues to volunteer at the accessible garden she founded with her husband. Neighbourhood gardeners create humorous miniature gnome villages to bring a bit of joy to their street.
Ageless Gardens is a visual celebration of gardens, with a special emphasis on the role gardens can play in healthy aging.
The physical, mental, and social aspects of gardening can be important therapeutic factors in health and wellness. Gardening can bring us food, physical exercise, and keep our minds sharp as we age. Learning to adapt to changing physical, familial, and social situations is key to continuing to garden into our retirement years.
