Dear Fellow Gardener,
If you take pleasure in working the soil through your fingers ... if you can look back at the earth you've tended and see in your mind's eye the beauty that will grow over time ... then you are a gardener - a kindred spirit.
I would like to invite you to join a special group of individuals who share our joy for bringing the world around us to life. At the American Horticultural Society, we educate and inspire people of all ages to become successful and environmentally responsible gardeners.
For a limited time, you can join with a donation of just $25 - a $10 savings off the standard membership - and help us make the world a greener, cleaner, and more beautiful place.
Your gift will help people of all ages learn and enjoy the craft of gardening and you will receive valuable benefits:
• A full year (6 issues) of The American Gardener magazine with informative and inspirational articles;
• Invitation to participate in the Society's members-only Annual Seed Exchange;
• Free admission and other discounts to 300 botanical gardens and arboreta across North America; and
• Access to our popular members-only online gardening resources
You'll also receive a FREE Gardener's Tote bag when you join AHS through this email.
As a member of AHS, you'll take incredible pride knowing that you are part of an organization dedicated to making our nation greater ... by making it greener. You will also support our innovative programs that engage children and youth in gardening and that encourage earth-friendly choices for creating and maintaining thriving gardens.
As a gardener, you know that you don¹t plant for today - you plant for tomorrow. You make the choices now that will create a better world in the future. We have much to teach the world around us, and together, we have the power within us to share the simple and spectacular benefits of a garden with all those around us.
Knowing your enthusiasm for gardening and creating a greener world, I truly hope you will join AHS today. I know you'll love the benefits, and you'll love the wonderful things we can grow together!
