Claude Monet once said
“My wish is to stay always like this, living quietly in a corner of nature.”
Restoring your relationship with nature in any form contains the power to change your whole life. Our busy lives do not allow us to always stay very close to nature and it is understandable for everyone but we can still find ways to build a connection with nature even staying in our homes. Gardening is one of the easiest ways to feel linked with nature. For most people, gardening is a very heavy responsibility so they lose interest even if they like having plants and greenery near them. It is so important to understand and learn the countless health benefits that gardening brings.
