Dave's Garden is the largest online community of gardeners in the world, and they are always hungry for new opportunities to learn about gardening
Waltham, MA (PRWEB) February 5, 2009
Dave's Garden remains the innovative leader in gardening websites, launching an exclusive feature that allows visitors and members of Dave's Garden to learn new tidbits of gardening history every day.
This unique feature is the only one of its kind, highlighting the history, events and noteworthy occasions that happened in gardening, agriculture and weather. From well-known botanists' birthdays to arcane and obscure events, each day gives readers a glimpse into the historically significant and interesting gardening-related anniversaries that occurred on that date. By focusing on gardening-related events, this daily feature distinguishes itself from other daily histories and calendars that focus on pop culture, sports, and science.
"Dave's Garden is the largest online community of gardeners in the world, and they are always hungry for new opportunities to learn about gardening," said Dave Whitinger, webmaster and founder of Dave's Garden. "This feature gives gardeners a quick, convenient way to learn about famous gardeners, extreme weather history, and modern trivia like when the first Master Gardening class began. We are happy to find such a unique and fun way to promote garden history and education."
The daily garden history draws on a comprehensive database of more than 1,100 detailed summaries compiled through careful research, correspondence with botanical and historical societies, and extensive fact-checking. The day's events are displayed on the Dave's Garden home page. Since its introduction, the daily history has received rave reviews from members and visitors, and an interactive area for feedback and discussion is being planned.
