About the Holiday

With many people chained to desk jobs, National Gardening Exercise Day is a great excuse to get outdoors, garden and get some exercise at the same time. Experts say that various gardening activities have both aerobic and muscle building benefits.[1]

In fact, it's estimated that an hour of general gardening will burn 272 calories, enough to burn off a Grande Starbucks Caffe Latte - made with whole milk. Whereas, mowing the lawn and weeding can burn 374 and 306 calories per hour, respectively.[2]

Research by chocolate zen garden blog indicates that evidence points to this holiday originating via various garden clubs and organizations.
