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?

"One of the most inspiring things in life is to enjoy God's creation in the great outdoors. The gardener knows this exhilaration personally, getting such an up-close view of nature, creation, and how it all works. When we study nature or grow things in our garden we can see the Creator's awesome handiwork. Watch a plant grow from a seed in the perfect order it was meant to, and think with wonder of our God. It is amazing how all things work together in nature, isn't it? Gardening is truly an awesome science. May the joy of gardening be yours this season!"

-- John, Sarah, and Family, Owners/Operators, St. Clare Heirloom Seeds
