🌵 Content Jungle - Vol. 002 🌵

"In the Blue Zones, people don't necessarily pump iron at the gym. Instead, their exercise comes from everyday activities such as walking, gardening, and cooking...This is the route to longevity—regular, low-intensity physical activity that you enjoy, deployed for decades...

Blue Zones inhabitants also tend to live close to nature and are able to grow their own food." 


Every Wednesday we bring you the best gardening content from every corner of the internet. 

Links to help you relax, learn, laugh, and go green. 

This week we dive into Blue Zones, the revival of a California commune, LEGO's tiny plants collection, seaweed photography, and King Charles' garden waste fashion collection. 

Plus, much more.
