Every April communities, organizations, and individuals nationwide celebrate gardening during National Garden Month. Hundreds of local NGM-related programs and activities around the country each help to transform America into a greener, more livable place, where the act of nurturing plants can influence education, health and nutrition, community, and local food sources. Search for events in your area.
The program's theme is, "When you Garden, you GROW." 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! There's 101 Ways to Celebrate. The website has a section on Fresh Ideas and some great "My Garden Stories" also.
