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?

"The thing that amazes me about gardening is that one can plant a small seed or root a cutting and watch it grow into something incredible. Whether it is an annual full of color or a towering tree, it is a remarkable thing to watch them grow and develop."

-- Brent Pemberton, Professor, Ornamental Horticulture and Plant Physiology, Texas A&M Agricultural Research and Extension Center
