AHS Updates Vision and Mission Statements

American Horticultural Society logoMaking Americans aware about environmentally-friendly — or sustainable — gardening practices has long been one of the American Horticultural Society’s (AHS) priorities, and now we’re pleased to say that this has been formalized in our national non-profit’s vision and mission:

Our Vision: A land of sustainable gardens, cultivated by a diverse population with a common passion for plants.

Our Mission: To share with all Americans the critical role of plants, gardens, and green spaces in creating healthy, livable communities and a sustainable planet.

We will be striving to implement more sustainable gardening practices at AHS’s River Farm headquarters in Alexandria, VA. We hope you will support our work at the national and local levels, and consider how you can engage in sustainable gardening as well.
