Though a very positive activity, gardening exposes the gardener to a number of possible bodily injuries, therefore, using personal protective equipment (PPE) is always recommended, including knee pads, gloves that would guard against exposure to pesticides, abrasions, and insect bites, and jeans that would protect one against the harmful effects of the sun’s rays, insect bites, and abrasions. It’s recommended that sunscreen be applied to skin exposed to the sun. A hat and goggles might also be recommended. Don’t forget to properly wash your hands after working in the dirt.
