South Burlington, VT (August 25, 2006) - The National Gardening Association (NGA) is pleased to announce that Ames True Temper is sponsoring National Garden Month™ this coming April for the second year in a row. During April 2007, NGA continues the theme, This is My Garden, encouraging pride of ownership by gardeners everywhere.
"National Garden Month is one of many ways in which NGA promotes gardening throughout the year. As we encourage people to be proud of their gardens, we reach out to those that don't think they have the time or the space to garden," says Mike Metallo, President, NGA. "NGA is pleased to have the support of Ames True Temper."
"Ames True Temper is excited to sponsor National Garden Month for the second year, as part of our continued effort to appeal to gardeners with our line of quality products," says Geoff Brownrigg, Ames True Temper Vice President of Marketing. "We support the NGA goal to increase the popularity of gardening and experience the physical, emotional, and environmental benefits it offers. Ames offers products that gardeners will enjoy using and that will last a lifetime. One of our new products is Planter's Buddy™. This unique 7-in-1 garden tool gives a whole new meaning to the term 'multi-tasking.'"
