Happy Gardening
(Golden Gate magazine, April 2006)

Did you know that gardeners are happier people?

That's what a recent American Society for Horticultural Science survey found.

The organization distributed a survey based on the Life Satisfaction Inventory to Texas Master Gardeners and other non-gardening community groups in Texas. When everything was tallied up, the survey showed that gardeners have more energy and zest for life.

You're probably not surprised, are you?
