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?

"Now is the time to plant many of the grasses and wildflowers that are part of the "rainforest" in our area of the planet - the plains and prairies. The time to reaffirm our faith that there will indeed be a future. A time to remind ourselves that each of us has the right and the responsibility to create little spots of health on an ailing planet. A time to do our part, in the hope that our children and our children's children might have a chance to experience the joys of watching the earth wake up from a long winter's rest to flower into a beautiful spring."

-- Bill Neiman, Native American Seed
