A European study questioned two groups to complete a stressful task. Afterward, one group gardened for thirty minutes, while the other group read indoors. Not only did the gardening group recorded better moods than the reading group, but they also had measurably lower cortisol levels. Cortisol, “the stress hormone”, may affect more than just mood: chronically elevated cortisol levels have been linked to everything from immune function to obesity to memory and learning problems and heart disease. It may be more than brain hormones causing higher self-esteem scores for gardeners: there’s no more tangible measure of one’s power to cause positive change in the world than to nurture a plant from seed to fruit-bearing.
