Welcome to River Farm


The American Horticultural Society headquarters at River Farm in Alexandria, Virginia, is a national showcase for gardening and horticultural practices. The natural beauty of this 25-acre historic site along the Potomac River is enhanced by a blend of formal and naturalistic gardens, including woodlands, a meadow and award-winning children’s gardens, along with many breathtaking views. 

Last year, AHS Celebrated 50 years at River Farm. By sharing our gardens, we hope to delight and enlighten all visitors to River Farm and provide them with inspiration for their own home. The AHS is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. To advance our educational mission through activities at River Farm, we depend on the support of our members, corporate partners, and contributions.
