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?

"April is a National Gardening Month for a reason. It is when we gardeners begin preparing for harvests of real, fresh, healthy food. Not yet a vegetable gardener? You do not need to be a land baron to get started. Many types of vegetables can be successfully grown in containers allowing even the most space-challenged folks the opportunity to raise their own food. Whether you dream of self-sufficiency, saving some money on your food budget, or taking control over the quality of what you eat, April is your opportunity to start."

-- Mike Dunton, Founder, Victory Seed Company
