Gardening makes children happy

28th June 2010

According to a study of 1,300 teachers and ten schools, if a child takes part in gardening their happiness and development are both boosted.

The study by the Royal Horticultural Society found that gardening made children learn how to solve problems better and increased their confidence. The report said: "The changeable nature of gardening projects - where anything from the weather to plant disease can affect the outcome - forced children to become more flexible and better able to think on their feet and solve problems."
