The official day will be Tuesday, September 1st, 2009.
National Indoor Gardening Day involves offering FREE one-hour classes in five cities across the U.S. about how to bring your outdoor garden indoors, how to continue growing fresh produce indoors and how to start your outdoor garden seedlings in the spring.

AeroGrow and The National Gardening Association felt the need for this day with the explosive growth of gardening across the U.S. this past summer. Now more people than ever are planting and growing their own herb and vegetable gardens. With the summer ending, AeroGrow wants to show gardeners old and new that gardening does not have to stop with the end of summer. With the ultimate gardening tool, the AeroGarden, gardeners can continue to grow and enjoy their favorite vegetables and herbs all year-round.
Hundreds of thousands of people are now enjoying garden-fresh food, grown indoors in their own AeroGardens. AeroGardens are easy-to-use, guaranteed to grow, dirt-free indoor gardens that let anyone enjoy beautiful herb, vegetable, salad or flower gardens, all year long.
