Gardening however, small helps older people with happiness and well being

I have written about the positive benefits of gardening – increased levels of serotonin and physical fitness.
Now a study in Netherlands about the effects of allotment gardening – small plots of land given to community members to cultivate vegetables and fruits for their own consumption, finds that gardening indeed promotes active life style and a feeling of well being.
Earlier studies also show that gardening promotes not only physical well being but self-esteem.
