Join in the fun of National Public Gardens Day
National Public Gardens Day was created in 2009 to drive local and national exposure to the importance of building vibrant, relevant gardens committed to community enrichment and environmental responsibility.
This annual tradition of celebrating public gardens takes place on the Friday preceding Mother’s Day weekend. Many public gardens (including those that are also AAS Display Gardens) mark the day with special events and activities for schools, families and thousands of visitors to explore and support their local public garden.
AAS Display Gardens “Get Social in the Garden”
In 2018, thirty AAS Display Gardens are participating in our annual Landscape Design Challenge. This year’s theme “Get Social in the Garden” focuses on the use of social media in promoting creative garden design. AAS sponsors this competition to recognize innovative flower and vegetable designs featuring AAS Winners, past and present. Participating gardens will be displaying the sign pictured above this summer as they showcase their picture-worthy designs. Winners of the challenge will be announced this fall.
