National Garden Week Proclamation
Whereas, Gardeners have a passion for nurturing the beauty and resources of the earth through planting of seeds, the care of all plants and the riches of their efforts; and
Whereas, Gardeners seek to add beauty, splendor, fragrance, and nutrition to our lives through the growing of herbs, vegetables, foliage and flowers; and
Whereas, Gardeners work to preserve our country's traditional spirit of independence and initiative through innovation and hard work; and
Whereas, Gardeners advocate the importance of all creatures, large and small, that share our world and their roles in a balanced and productive ecology; and
Whereas, Gardening furnishes a challenging and productive activity for our citizens, for those just learning as well as those having years of experience; and
Whereas, Gardening promotes a healthy lifestyle that lasts a lifetime, helps reduce stress from other areas of our life, teaches that rewards can come from diligent efforts; and
Whereas, Gardening enables members of Garden Club across the nation and the world to make a difference in the communities where they reside and work;
Now, Therefore be It Resolved that in an effort to acknowledge the importance of Gardening and the numerous contributions of Gardeners, National Garden Clubs, Inc. designates the week of June 1-7, 2014 as National Garden Week.
Linda G. nelson, 2013-2015 President, NGC, Inc.
