Experience poetry in the Garden and celebrate National Poetry Month

California poets welcome the season and National Poetry Month by sharing poems that celebrate our Garden, all gardens, nature and the environment of this fragile earth and out into limitless space.

Come and stroll the Garden's paths anytime throughout the event time to enjoy the art of the spoken word performed by poets in the Garden. They will be stationed at various locations around the Garden's Mesa Loop Trail.

Poetry books will be available for sale at the Poetry Stations and in the Garden Shop. Get yours signed by the author!

Inaugurated by the Academy of American Poets in 1996, National Poetry Month is now held every April, when schools, publishers, libraries, booksellers, and poets throughout the United States band together to celebrate poetry and its vital place in American culture. Thousands of organizations participate through readings, festivals, book displays, workshops, and other events.
