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?

"Gardeners are the most joyously generous people I've ever met. I never leave a garden empty-handed; whether with seeds, plants, or a portion of the harvest (double in zucchini season). I always go away with more enthusiasm, courage, and wisdom than when I arrived. That's because real gardeners want other gardeners to succeed. The best gardeners grow other gardeners."

-- Therese Ciesinski, In the Dirt newsletter editor,
