Redirecting, one moment please...

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?

"Gardening is about creating one’s own paradise and living in it. Whether one’s garden is as tiny as a patio or porch or wide as the sky, designing and tending it can be an ecstatic addiction, a passionate love affair with a dream that never quite comes true, but perhaps eventually it will. In winter we gardeners pore over seed catalogues with joyful hearts. Next year, we think, the garden will be better than ever. Let those who consider gardening a chore, go find something else to do and leave this joyful task to gardeners like me!"
