Growing change,

Gardening has many health benefits for people of all ages. A busy day in the garden can be a good form of exercise. Growing and eating your own fruits and vegetables can have a positive impact on your diet. People tend to breathe deeper when outside. This helps to clear out the lungs, improves digestion, improves immune response and increases oxygen levels in the blood. Most importantly, gardening has been shown to lighten mood and lower levels of stress and anxiety. It's very gratifying to plant, tend, harvest and share your own food. Routines provide structure to our day and are linked to improved mental health. Gardening routines, like watering and weeding, can create a soothing rhythm to ease stress.

One Seed at a Time, Inc. was born out of the desire to encourage more family friendly, sober community events, centered around conversations of food and gardening. There is a general lack of these types of functions in many communities, but especially ours being an agricultural county with little actual agriculture. Our goal is to provide these events at little to no cost for participants, while also promoting healthy communities. In doing so, we are also teaching valuable coping skills through gardening. We work with partners to bring more of these events, build public and school garden spaces to those communities, and educate on growing and maintaining those garden spaces.
