National Garden Month

A look back at a National Garden Month week:

We're so excited to be celebrating gardening this month! Each week we will feature new and fun activities, ideas and articles that will help get you and your friends excited about gardening.

It's Week 1 of National Garden Month, 2017!

When You Garden, You Grow!

Every April communities, organizations, and individuals nationwide celebrate gardening during National Garden Month. Gardeners know, and research confirms, that nurturing plants is good for us: attitudes toward health and nutrition improve, kids perform better at school, and community spirit grows. Join the celebration and help to make America a greener, healthier, more livable place!

About National Garden Month

Why Garden?

"Ah April, our National Garden Month! Deciduous trees with tender green new leaves, rose bushes bursting with buds and energy, seeds suddenly sprouting in our gardens. After another winter, gardening liberates us, makes us feel whole again. Let’s get some real dirt under our fingernails!"

-- Tom Ogren, Director, The Society for Allergy-Friendly Environmental (SAFE) Gardening
