Gardening has many health benefits, including access to fresh, nutritious produce, physical activity, and stress reduction. But before you dig into the soil, dig into the history of the site to learn if you need to test for soil contaminants, and take precautions to minimize gardeners’ exposure to any health hazards from past land use.
The tool lending program lends assistance to gardeners and landscapers in becoming efficient with their work. This program is also helpful to those who do not have the convenient spaces to store tools. Most importantly, the tool lending program brings Cooperative Extension resources into the community.
