GARDENING and GARBAGE
All I can do in PD is to provide the seeds,
and hope they get planted.
Bacterium Mycobacterim vaccae found in soil triggers the release of serotonin, which elevates mood and reduces anxiety. It also improves our cognitive function. Gardeners inhale these bacteria while digging in the soil. Research has found that children that grow up on farms are 30-50% less likely to develop asthma (New England Journal of Medicine)… it is good for children’s health for them to play in the dirt and get dirty. – Cosmos Magazine “How gardening could cure depression” –> Dirt Can Make You HAPPY.… so -> PLANT A SEED
BE-E a CS Advocate
BE-E a Pollinator – We can’t live without them.
Go to your fields and your gardens, and you shall learn that
it is the pleasure of the bee to gather honey of the flower,
But it is also the pleasure of the flower to yield its honey to the bee.
For to the bee a flower is a fountain of life,
And to the flower a bee is a messenger of love,
And to both, bee and flower, the giving and the receiving of pleasure is a need and an ecstasy.
