Win $500 during National Public Gardens Day!

Share this on:

Take the day off work, get out and enjoy nature!  Tomorrow, May 11, many arboretums across the country are open to the public with no admission fee!  Plus, you could win $500 with a photo you take while visiting one of America’s great gardens!

Not only will the fresh air and beautiful garden designs inspire you, but you can learn about (and apply to your own gardens):

  • Native plants that thrive in your area with little maintenance
  • Water conservation and rainwater harvesting (rainbarrels, raingardens, efficient drip irrigation systems, etc.)
  • Landscape design techniques
  • Plant sales at the gardens where you can get professional advice

This event takes place every year on the Friday before Mother’s Day, so grab Mom and check out the list of participating gardens near you!  Then download a voucher for free admission here.
