When You Garden, You Grow!

Every April communities, organizations, and individuals nationwide celebrate gardening during National Garden Month.

About National Garden Month

Why Garden?

"Gardening cultivates life! I'm so grateful to family and friends who showed me by example over the years how important gardening was to them. Whether it was the pure joy of a new flower or a healthy harvest of homegrown food, I learned how their efforts bring joy and help maintain fitness, too. Thank you all!"

-- Dan Long, Owner, Brushwood Nursery
