The new online gardening resource, Garden Aware is aiming to get more young readers gardening. It has set out to break the stereotype that green fingers are a hobby for the older generation with a colourful and engaging website offering interesting and attention-grabbing articles.
With a recent global gardening survey revealing that 47% of the UK population would like to introduce their children and/or grandchildren to the world of horticulture, it has never been a better time for families to grab their gloves and seed the passion for gardening.
Research suggest that the younger generation is becoming more interested in gardening with a recent survey showing it is more popular than the cinema with some 25-35 year-olds. This year, the Royal Horticulture Society also found that 89% of 16-25-year-olds have a garden or grow plants.
Shad Zac, Owner of Garden Aware said, “The number of young gardeners is on the rise, however, many still believe that gardening is reserved for the elderly, the retired or those with too much time on their hands. Here at Garden Aware we aim to show budding horticulturalists that tackling a garden is not only relaxing, but rewarding.”
It is never too early to experience the array of benefits that gardening offers both physical and psychological. These include a lowering of blood pressure, to lower chances of strokes and heart disease and a better diet free of too much processed food and full of fresh fruit and vegetables.
Zac added, “Our website offers a vast range of articles, techniques and tips for anyone who wishes to get their fingers green. There is something for everyone, and with years of experience, Garden Aware is designed to be accessible for young gardeners to pick up the tools they require.”
