Don’t forget Gardening.  Another great outdoor activity is growing your own fruits and vegetables in a home made garden.  The benefits of Gardening go well beyond a great looking lawn, beautiful flower and good food.  The movement and time outside burn calories and help mental health.  Many communities, including Bond County and Highland have local garden clubs ready to help anyone get moving and out in their yards or green spaces.
