National Gardening Week
Date When Celebrated : First full week of June
National Gardening Week is a wonderful, week long event. It is both a celebration, and an educational opportunity. National Gardening Week celebrates one of America's most popular hobbies. Tens of millions of Americans, young and old alike, grow a garden of some size. This week is a great opportunity to get out into your garden and tend to it, along with enjoying your garden's peacefulness and beauty. Regardless of whether your garden is big or small, show it off to family and gardening friends.
National Gardening Week is also a great time to promote this hobby, and offer educational programs to the general public Garden clubs, 4H groups, schools, and even businesses can get into the act, providing some form of educational programs, demonstrations, or seminars. As individuals, gardeners can encourage others to start gardening.
However you celebrate this week, we hope it is a great growing experience for all involved!
Along with this glorious week for us gardeners to thoroughly enjoy our beloved hobby in our gardens, a daily holiday occurs this month. That is National Gardening Exercise Day!
