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?

"I garden because I cannot help myself. I like the view out the window, but it’s more—as if the garden is a perennial sermon or dharma talk, a reminder to reflect that I’m part of something bigger. The garden is my science teacher, too, and most of all my taskmaster, because a garden without a gardener is a jungle waiting to happen. A gardener without a garden? Likewise, a sorry sight indeed."

-- Margaret Roach, author, blogger, podcast host, AWayToGarden.com
