How to Garden Your Way into Old Age
Given their financial mess, the Greeks are not being asked much for advice on anything and it's a pity because they have a lot to teach the world, for example, how to live to 100 while keeping your wits about you.
This article in the New York Times focuses on one Greek island called Ikaria where residents routinely live past 90 and seeks to understand why. It all seems to come down to lifestyle: good food, physical activity, and social interaction.
I think it's worth noting that the word "garden" appears 11 times in the article!
