Consumer Horticulture is the only form of agriculture practiced in every county in the United States and has a tremendous impact on the economy, the environment, human health, and communities.

It supports jobs in retail & commercial horticulture as well arborists, landscape architects & designers, landscape professionals, and all the wholesalers who support them.

  • 77% of U.S. households garden
  • $48 billion spent annually by Do-It-Yourself consumers
  • $55 billion spent annually by consumers to purchase horticulture services

Environmental impacts include mitigating climate change; conserving energy, soil, water and air quality; creating habitat; and promoting land stewardship.  Improved physical and mental health, building connections, enhancing beauty and increasing value are a few of the impacts on families and communities.

Come and meet the extraordinary team addressing these issues and learn about our strategies, partnerships, programs, resources, and impacts.  We will introduce you to our interactive handbookonline plant toolboxinstructional resourcesvirtual classes, the Extension Master Gardener program, and much more.
