Ann and Betchai: A membership would get you benefits to nurseries and other gardens around the United States so even if you do not live here you benefit by a membership. Check out the links to the pages and you can see what you'd win.

This is a great chance to be involved. We are members of our local garden, and we have truly enjoyed the reciprocal benefits at gardens and exhibits in several states that our membership provides.
