The benefits of gardening (either indoors or outdoors) to urban man are almost unlimited. A simple potted plant on a work desk improves the esthetics of our environment. The air quality is improved with the addition of greenery indoors or out. Gardening is an affective mood enhancer, relieves stress, speeds physical rehabilitation and enhances appreciation and understanding of life for children, as well as, adults. Gardening maintains the needed ties with nature, which seem at times so fragile in an urban environment. To conserve water and for adaptability to the environment, I recommend using native plants where possible. Your local nursery or agricultural office can help with this. Gardens can be built to accommodate most handicaps. So there are few conditions that would prohibit gardening.
