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.

Plant trees to create sustainable landscaping or create a bird-friendly backyard…the options are endless. If you don’t feel like getting your hands “dirty”, here are some ideas to get the entire family involved:

  • Visit a green house or nursery.
  • Talk about the differences of a flower garden and a vegetable garden.
  • Learn about the different parts of a plant.
  • Volunteer to help in a community garden project.
  • Have a plant swap party.
  • Host a garden poetry party.

Ready. Set. Go plan your own plant adventure.
