Why Preserve and Share Gardens?

Our Silver Anniversary Annual Report, published in 2015, features 22 pages of personal statements from people around the country with whom we have interacted over the years. These personal expressions and dozens of photos tell a compelling story -- the story of not just what we do, but also WHY we save and share outstanding gardens for the education and inspiration of the public.

Five common themes emerge from the comments. Our work to preserve, share, and celerate gardens helps:

- To bring together people and gardens

- To preserve inspiring artistic visions

- To bring our cultural legacy to life

- To showcase best practices in horticulture

- To foster vibrant communities
