Gardening, as well as theatre, are both forms of live, active escapism. I would argue this is a lot healthier than watching something on a screen, as passive escapism has fewer benefits. This is also due to the community that these arts create, whether this is a live audience or a friendship created in an allotment – connecting to likeminded people is so important for our creative minds and general wellbeing.
I really hope this helps you understand the sheer importance of taking a breath of fresh air, and looking after nature, whether this be your garden or local park, enjoying the benefits and helping the gardening community grow.
(And maybe visit your local theatre too!
