Gardening is fun
One major advantage of gardening is simply that it can be a lot of fun. For me and also for numerous other people all over the world, seeing your plants grow is pretty interesting and fascinating.

This is especially true when it comes to growing from seed to harvest. If you see the small seed you have planted and what will grow out of it, it is just unbelievable. Thus, for many people, gardening is a quite joyful hobby.

Embellishment of your home
Depending on the plants you grow, gardening can also improve the appearance of your home. For instance, if you grow some nice flowers in your home, chances are that the overall look of your furniture will improve.

Some good examples of nice flowers that are also rather easy to cultivate are plants from the orchids family, which you can get from almost every flower shop in your area. Thus, gardening can not only be productive, it can also improve the overall look of your home.

Grow your own organic food
Through gardening at home, it will also be possible to produce large amounts of vegetables and fruits. Especially if you have a big garden, you could plant numerous plants and harvest plenty of fruits and vegetables in autumn.

You might even harvest so much that you could give away some of them to your family and friends. And the best part of it: You can grow them in an entirely organic manner!

This may not only improve your ecological footprint since you do not have to buy vegetables that are shipped over quite long distances from the store, you could also improve your overall health level since organic food is considered to be healthier compared to conventional food that had been treated with plenty of pesticides.

Even if you do not have a big garden, you could still grow some organic food on your balcony. There are a variety of options and you will be surprised how easy it actually is to grow your own food at home.

Saving money in the long run
Although gardening will cost you some initial investments in equipment, you could still save plenty of money on vegetables and fruits in the long run if you grow them by yourself. By growing your own fruits and vegetables, you will also be quite independent of the organic grocery stores.

Say at one point in time, these stores will significantly increase their prices. You could be pretty indifferent about this since you could grow all you need on your balcony or in your garden. Thus, growing your own plants will also give you a significant amount of freedom and independence from grocery shops.

Education for your children
Gardening is not only a fun hobby, it can also be quite useful to show your children how vegetables and other plant food can be cultivated and where they actually come from.

Many kids in our nowadays society have never seen a plant growing in their lives. They just think that the food comes from the grocery store, but they have no idea how much work had to be put in up to this point.

Thus, by growing plants with your kids, you can improve their knowledge. Your kids will also value their food much more since they know how much work it really takes to grow a plant.

Once they grow up, your kids are also more likely to engage in gardening, which would further improve their ecological footprint since fewer vegetables and fruits have to be bought from the grocery store.

Therefore, you can make a big positive environmental impact by showing your kids how to grow plants in your garden or on your balcony.

Improvement in the understanding of nature
Many people in our nowadays society also lost their connection to nature. They just go to their office job, work long hours, come home late and fall asleep. These steps basically repeat from Monday to Friday.

However, through this daily routine, a vast amount of experience and knowledge from our ancestors will be lost. Through gardening, part of this knowledge can be recovered and the connection of people to nature can be improved to a certain extent.

Reduction of mental health issues
Gardening can also be a wonderful tool when it comes to curing mental health issues. A big fraction of mental health problems in our current society comes from increasing stress levels and information overload. People often feel that they have to be available 24/7 and eventually burn out.
