Garden lovers never need an excuse to spend time doing what they enjoy most. However, these special garden holidays that come around throughout the year are not to be missed. Most people have heard of Earth Day, which is celebrated throughout the globe. But did you know that there are many more garden-related holidays on the calendar? Even the biggest plant and gardening fan may not know about all of them, so mark your calendars and begin thinking of some great ways to honor these special days.
Love butterflies? March 14 is designated as Learn About Butterflies Day, and it's a great opportunity to teach your kids about butterflies (and learn yourself too!) and help grow the butterfly population in your area.
June 16th is National Fresh Veggies Day, and we, garden lovers, need to celebrate it. Here are 4 ways to honor this day.
As you can see, there are many great garden holidays to celebrate throughout the year. You might recognize these special days by tending to your own garden. Or you can invite some plant-loving friends to enjoy tea in the garden with you.
They also make a great time for awareness (which is what many of them were created for) so you can tell your non-gardening friends and family about them too. There are no rules about how you should or should not celebrate them, we just hope that you take a little time to get to know about them. You can use this post as your reference and return to it whenever you wish!
