Round 1 of the Smithsonian Summer Showdown – Vote for Community of Gardens

August 7, 2015 at 1:04 pm Leave a comment


This August the Smithsonian is having a showdown between its museums, gardens, cultural centers, and zoo to determine the Institution’s most “Seriously Amazing” program or object and Smithsonian Gardens needs your help to win! This year we nominated Community of Gardens – an online archive of gardens grown by you.


Some of the beautiful photos submitted to Community of Gardens.

We created Community of Gardens to provide a digital home for stories, photographs, and videos of gardens across America. Anyone can add their story, which means an account of your parents’ backyard wedding, your grandmother’s tomatoes, or your neighborhood’s community garden can become part of the Smithsonian. You can read garden stories and submit your own here. What’s more amazing than that?

So show your support for the project and vote now. Better yet get everyone you know to  vote for Community of Gardens before the end of Round 1 on Wednesday, August 12. Plus, when you vote you’ll be entered to win a prize package of goodies from the Smithsonian store.
