How to Keep Gardening as We Age
Gardening is great exercise, but it can become more difficult through the years. Aging knees and backs, and overall muscle loss make it harder to do the kind of gardening we once enjoyed. This talk will provide suggestions for making your garden less labor intensive while still providing joy and a beautiful setting for your home.
