Lack of time may be the number one thing that stops people from enjoying gardening, and it’s something I get asked about regularly.

In episode 009 I share a few simple ways to grow food in small spaces, and mentioned that a lot time and space were two things most people thought was needed to grow a thriving garden…and maybe money too!

But you don’t need a lot of these, you just need a few basic ideas and simple sustainable techniques to grow and enjoy gardening.

A few years ago I was inspired to write an article on this topic, after reading research for my Horticultural Therapy studies, on the health benefits from just 30 minutes, a few times a week in the garden.

I wanted to share a list of many activities that could be completed in just 30 minutes of gardening, or relaxing, time.

There are many wonderful things that you can enjoy in the garden and in this episode I share a few suggestions, including;

  • Propagating new plants
  • Weeding your garden
  • Planting seedlings
  • Harvesting a meal or some fresh herbs
  • Planting a tree, or two
  • Creating a compost pile
  • Fertilising plants
  • Cut a bunch of bananas
  • Watering your garden

These all improve physical and psychological wellbeing and a perfect for any age or ability.
