How beautiful would that feeling be when you wake up to the aroma of fresh mint growing in your backyard - a place where you have passionately grown organic vegetables, fruits, spices, and herbs loaded with nutrition!
Everyone can grow a nutrition garden. Whether you are growing a single tomato plant or have a large backyard garden, it is beneficial both to your health and the environment. When growing your own food, your diet is more diverse and healthier, packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, besides not using chemicals or pesticides that harm you and your environment. Gardening is a fun way to get amidst greens for some fresh air and involve yourself in exercise.
Especially in times of unprecedented lockdowns, growing your own nutrition garden has a deep and long-term impact on your physical and mental health. Reduced symptoms of depression and anxiety, stress and mood disturbances are already cited by researchers. You can find a deep connect by growing your own gardens.
Welthungerhilfe India has demonstrated a wide variety of nutrition gardens using agroecological approaches that transfer biodiversity on the soil to diet diversity on the plate. The gardens are designed by local communities to provide healthy food throughout the year, keeping in mind locally available natural and human resources.
The hand-painted acrylic paintings of the gardens in this calendar bring to you some of the tried and tested models that can be replicated in your backyards, balconies, rooftops, community parks and rural farmlands. So, get ready with some soil, seed and your shovel!
