Why We Created this community,
The Miniature Garden Society:

~> As leaders in the miniature gardening industry, we’re tired of fluff-filled websites with no valuable information that are just out for the advertising revenue.

~> As innovators in our in field, we disrupt the way things are done to create endless new possibilities for what could be, rather than doing the same old thing.

~> As people, like you, who love to garden, we want a community of other like-minded enthusiasts we can have real conversations with, and not just look at pretty pictures on Pinterest.

~> As creators, we use the art of gardening in miniature as our creative outlet which allows us to not only have our own fun, but it gives us a way to share our love and joy with the rest of the world – which can only spread more love and joy!

~> As explorers in this new hobby, we are curious to find out what works well for the living miniature gardens, so we can dig deeper into our creativity, instead of just experimenting willy-nilly and wasting valuable time and money.

 ~> As gardeners, we value Mother Nature in all her glory and we love our gardens, large and small, because they keep us grounded, keep us growing and it’s a way to connect us to the rest of the world.

~> And as miniature gardeners, we love to share nature’s details and mysteries with one another, no matter how small, because we understand how meaningful those little moments can be.







You see, miniature gardening is not only a way to grow, play, experiment, plant, create, invent, dig deeper or garden smaller, it is a way touch the hearts of people in ways that they never would have imagined.

Take a look at one of our Miniature Garden Society outreach installations at the Old Soldier’s Home in Orting, Washington, that we built this past spring of 2017. 

Our “Operation: Spark Joy” at this Old Soldier’s Home was a collaboration between the Miniature Garden Society and the Hill and Dale Garden Club – and it is a complete success!

And by success, we don’t just mean the garden is growing and doing well, what we really mean by success is that the residents taking ownership of the garden, they are enjoying the daily maintenance, the seasonal changes and the laugh or three that they get connecting over the miniature garden!

It was awesome. We’re looking to do MORE of this!

This is where the Miniature Garden Society come in! We’re looking to do more of these types of installations in senior’s homes, children’s hospitals and more veteran homes throughout the country as a way to deliver some garden therapy where it is needed most.

As a member of this Miniature Garden Society, you will be a part of this too!

Really enjoy the articles and ideas. I am especially thankful

Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge.
Thanks again. Sincerely, Camille R.
