Go Public Gardens is an ongoing, evergreen Association initiative to drive the public to visit, value, and volunteer at public gardens in their area and when they travel.
The campaign brings a special focus from the Friday before to the Sunday after Mother’s Day (May 7-16, 2021) called Go Public Gardens Days! Gardens will automatically be listed as a Go Public Gardens Days participant, and can enhance their presence on the Association website ( with links to their own events page and donations portal.

Go Public Gardens Days - Online!

Through the Association's Education Community, Alexandra Cantwell at the Norfolk Botanical Garden is spearheading a project where gardens present an online event during Go Public Gardens Days focused on the garden and its history, collections, etc. These events will be hosted on the NBG and Association online platforms.

It will be a great way to promote your garden, and inspire people to visit in person when safe to do so!
