Why Is Garden Week Important?
Let’s face it – nurturing plants ensures our survival. It’s that simple. In Hopewell and Prince George County, Virginia, we express the importance of gardening and agriculture in many ways. Our local area promotes gardening through the Prince George Master Gardener Association Horticulture Scholarship. It is offered to students pursuing their love of gardening and plant science.
Perhaps the most glamorous of botanical events is Historic Garden Week www.vagardenweek.org April 22-29, 2017. This is the Academy Awards of gardening. Grab a catalog at the Hopewell, Virginia Visitors Center to plan your tour. There’s a lot “growing” on!
