There seems to be a special day for everything and everyone, so why shouldn’t public gardens get their day in the sun? With that thought in mind, the non-profit group American Public Gardens declared National Public Gardens Day on Friday, May 8.

National Public Gardens Day is a celebration to raise awareness of America’s public gardens and their important role in promoting environmental awareness, plant and water conservation and community education.

Celebrate National Public Gardens Day by visiting a local public garden, such as the Boerner Botanical Gardens, or consider starting a community garden in your neighborhood. Check the public gardens Web site for more information.
