Studies at Alnarp, a branch of Sweden’s Agricultural University, indicate that the actual physical contact with plants can have positive, even healing effects. Luckily, there’s ginger.

Gardening is (apparently) child’s play

Seeding tomatoes is another super easy way to sprout new life. Also, it makes for an activity so playfully colourful it screams for attention. Simply place slices in soil and tend it. Spring is an ideal time to sow, so round up the family for a planting session.
