You've heard of slow eating, how about some slow gardening.  Take a look at this article on slow gardening from Country Living magazine.

"It’s thought that slow gardening emerged in the 1980s, taking inspiration from the Slow Food movement (founded it Italy by Carlo Petrini). It’s also a book by Mississippi gardener Felder Rushing, who unlike his name suggests, promotes a simple, no-stress approach to gardening via his radio show and published work."  ~Kyra Hanson
