Pilot Project Announced at Longwood Gardens

We just learned that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the American Public Gardens Association (APGA) have announced an innovative pilot project at Longwood Gardens right here in Kennett Square, Pa., that links NOAA’s climate services and APGA’s public gardens.

According to NOAA, this new partnership will focus on educating gardeners and garden enthusiasts about the possible effects of climate change on America's gardens, landscapes and green spaces. Sounds like a great idea to me!

The information that is obtained from the project will be able to help gardeners, landscapers and farmers identify which plant species will best survive in certain conditions. To learn more about this project, click here.
