National Public Gardens Day – May 10th

National Public Gardens Day

National Public Gardens Day is Friday, May 10th – Celebrate with free admission!

National Public Gardens Day, which is the Friday before Mother’s Day, is a day of awareness inviting communities across North America to visit and learn about the important role that public gardens play in our lives.

For example, many gardens conduct research and aid in the discovery of new plant species or the creation of new plant varieties. Your local garden may also play a valuable role in helping to protect endangered plants. Or it may offer outreach programs that allow you to take classes about gardening, landscaping, or other topics.

It’s a great opportunity to check out a new public garden in your area or visit your family’s favorite local garden. Just print your voucher good for 2 free admissions from Better Homes and Gardens!
