Community of Gardens is the Smithsonian’s home for exploring and collecting stories about gardens and the gardeners who make them grow. Anyone from the public can add their garden story to the digital archive, from stories of community gardens to memories of grandmother’s garden roses to “putting up” cans of tomatoes from the harvest.
