In fact, some have already planted seeds indoors to be transplanted outside a little later. According to Steve Rodie, University of Nebraska Horticulturist, instinctively, humans are connected to nature. It doesn't mat- ter where they live or how much money they earn, many enjoy working out- doors in the garden. Gardens people enjoy are often a place of refuge where they can get away from the stresses of the world. In this hectic society, personal restora- tion and stress reduction have become increasingly important for healthy lives, healthy relationships and overall wandering as people enjoy the design of the garden. Research also shows gardening and being in the garden helps hospital pa- tients hefil faster; relieves road rage in commuters and reduces violence and conflict in the home. Enhanced per- sonal and family quality-of-life is some- thing that we all strive for. If you want to learn more about gardening, you may want to attend the Spring Affair State Fair Park, Lincoln.

The American Nursery and Land- scape Association reports there is a tendency to cocoon-- retreat from life' s daily pressures by staying home. This is one reason many people are looking through garden catalogs and making plans for gardens in their backyards or close to home. Research has identified critical ar- eas where gardening can help with personal restoration. When people are focused and immersed in caring for the garden, they will build psychological energy as they enjoy the colors and textures of the plants. Working in the garden will re-energize and Ielieve stress just by being away frdm the workplace or source of daily stress.
