Earth Day

the Chase Garden Flower Path in Washington State

I've just discovered what I consider to be one of the most worth-while
horticultural & landscape architecture programs in the USA,

The Garden Conservancy

Since its founding, the Garden Conservancy, which is a non-profit
organization, has done more than any other national institution
to save and preserve America’s exceptional gardens
for the education and enjoyment of the public.

Since 1989, the Garden Conservancy has helped more than 90
important gardens in the United States survive and prosper.
Currently, there are 16 major preservation projects
all across the United States under its care.

The Garden Conservancy was established in 1989 by Frank Cabot,
the distinguished American gardener.
In partnership with individual garden owners as well as public and private
organizations,  the Conservancy provides the horticultural, technical,
management, and financial expertise  needed to sustain these fragile
environments and ensure long-term  stewardship of natural assets
so essential to the aesthetic and cultural life of our communities.

For anyone who has ever toured beautiful gardens, wanted a lovely garden,
or just enjoys growing flowers in a big pot,
 this is a site you will want to visit.

When you go to the website you will find a list of gardens all across the U.S.
which will be open to the public under their sponsorship from
April - October 2010.
Maybe one is near you and this could be an incredible opportunity to view
these amazing properties.

If you think this information is worthwhile, please forward it on to your friends,
or link back to me in your post
as all of us must strive to protect
Mother Earth

Wonderful photo. and information. I love the great outdoors, where I live we have what is known as the New Forset where horses, cows, sheep, donkeys and many more animals roam freely, and the wooded areas are a wonderful sight to see.

Have a good day.
