PHS Teams with the National Gardening Association

Every gardener enjoys learning new tips and ideas, as well as sharing their garden triumphs and setbacks. That’s why we wanted to share with you some great information from our partners at the National Gardening Association (NGA).

Founded in 1973, the NGA is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote home, school, and community gardening as a means to renew and sustain the essential connection between people, plants, and the environment.

NGA understands how varied gardening conditions are across the United States, and how important it is for gardeners to get advice that is specific to their region. As such, NGA publishes free Regional Garden Report e-newsletters with 12 garden experts reporting biweekly from all over the country.

The e-newsletters contain informative columns, timely tips, and information on the latest gardening resources available online, in books, and at local events. The NGA regional reporters are all experienced gardeners who know what it’s like to grow vegetables, fruits, and ornamentals in their parts of the country. They stay on top of the latest information, research, and gardening trends so that readers know what they need to have the most successful gardens.

You can subscribe to the free biweekly NGA Regional Gardening Report by visiting the National Gardening Association website. Check out KidsGardening and its many resources for educators and parents, and be sure to visit the NGA Facebook page to get a free daily tip and to connect with avid gardeners from around the globe.
