It’s no secret that gardening contributes positively to our overall sense of health and wellbeing. During the height of the pandemic there was an influx of new gardeners. Many now had time to dedicate to a new “hobby” and there was a deep-rooted urge to grow. The Japanese practice of “Forest Bathing” became a common concept. Nature Therapy, otherwise called “ecotherapy”, became its own distinct area within psychology, with some practitioners now dedicating their work to that field exclusively. My own journey started with a small, raised bed and before I knew it, I was growing my own plants, learning about seed saving, and canning and preserving the yields.
