Can I Get Your Opinion on Something ... Is Gardening Manly?

I was thinking about gardening and how I think it would be better on so many levels if more men did it in today's world. It kind of seems like "gardening" is feminine and "farming" is masculine.

I have a website where we create online gardening course called Organic Life Guru. The majority of our instructors are men (Check out the bottom of the homepage to see what I mean) and the majority of our online gardening courses customers are women.

What's your take on this?

Stepping back, what is the purpose of a question?  Is it really always to find an answer to something the person doesn't know?  

Chris Badgett asked: Can gardening be manly? Maybe the purpose wasn't to find an answer to something he didn't know, but maybe it was to generate discussion or hmm, to promote a website (I see nothing wrong with either).  

My bet is that Chris knows and firmly believes deep in his soul that gardening is very manly.  I mean, after all,  he's devoted much of his time to it and has a really cool website with courses.  And look, as of this writing, 2,156 views of his question.  I bet more than a few of those viewers have checked out his website and maybe some have even taken his course.

Way to go, manly Chris!

The Great Debate

"Iron sharpens iron." A place for men to impact each other by debate and exchange of ideas. This is a group where no ideas are off limits. If your motto is, "I never talk about politics or religion," this group is probably not for you. A "gym" for thinkers.See More
