Join Us for Wellness Wednesdays - May 27 Topic is Plant a Seed

May is Mental Health month and with schools in the North Syracuse Central School ­District on-line, we are stressing our Wellness Wednesdays! This week’s topic is Growing from Seeds. Gardening reminds us of our connection to nature, and helps us focus on the bigger picture, which can alleviate symptoms of depression. Also, the physical aspect of gardening releases feel-good chemicals in the brain such as serotonin and dopamine. Finally, working with soil makes us happier.  

How to Share: Email your photos or videos to lcook@nscsd.org or Share on Facebook or Twitter with @NSyracuseCSD and use #NSCSDWellness.

Good timber does not grow with ease:
The stronger wind, the stronger trees;
The further sky, the greater length;
The more the storm, the more the strength.
By sun and cold, by rain and snow,
In trees and men good timbers grow.
- by Douglas Malloch
