When You Garden, You Grow!

Join the celebration and help to make America a greener, healthier, more livable place!

About National Garden Month

Why Garden?

"In this stressful and crazy world, taking time out to literally smell the flowers is the best thing we can do to reconnect with the Earth, with nature, with ourselves. Stop. Look around. Put your hands in the soil, get dirt under your nails. Let your bare feet feel the green grass of spring. Let the sun kiss your skin. Breathe in the peace and joy of living. Create Eden in your own yard."
