Resolve to Get Gardening and Get Healthy

Instead of spending time and money at the gym, spend it in your landscape. Resolve to combine your exercise resolution with your garden goals.

For a couple of years I’ve suggested New Year’s resolutions on various ways to reduce, reuse and recycle. And I stand behind those resolutions. But we all know that the most common resolution for Americans is to get healthier.

So this time I’m suggesting that instead of spending time and money at the gym, spend it in your garden. Resolve to combine your exercise resolution with your garden goals.

It’s been said the best way to keep a New Year’s resolution is to be specific in your goals. So here are a few ideas to get gardening and get healthy.

If you have a get gardening-get healthy idea, we want to hear it! Share it with us on Facebook or Twitter. And, if you try any of our ideas, let us know when you’ve accomplished them. We want to celebrate with you!

Have a happy and healthy 2018!
