Victory gardens… man that takes us back to wartime history lessons and historic times of global uncertainty. Many countries including the United States found their citizens hard at work in their home gardens and although it’s been a long stretch of confident times the Coronavirus pandemic has the world living once again in a collective uncertainty against a viral war and looking for social distancing spaces that still make us feel connected.
It’s hard not to be able to see the enemy and yet to know it’s lurking everywhere across the globe. It’s impossible to fully ignore all the media Coronavirus pandemic coverage but, many of us have turned off the television and put down the paper to uncover a space to grow something good, to distract our minds from the headlines, to teach and learn something new and to work toward a long-term goal in a time that we are living with compounded uncertainty.
The Victory garden is our prescription for restoring and maintaining good mental health; nurture your garden and it nurtures your soul.
