WHAT IS NAJGA?

The North American Japanese Garden Association (NAJGA) promotes the sustainability and development of North American Japanese gardens.


A NETWORK FOR THE FIELD OF JAPANESE GARDENS IN NORTH AMERICA:                             









                                                        Mark Keane addresses attendees at the 2012 NAJGA Conference in Denver, CO. 


Japanese gardens are an international phenomenon. They are found in at least 53  countries, 

North America alone has more than 250. Despite their popularity and social function, there have 

been few regular forums for the exchange of information and ideas about them, until now. 

In 2010, leaders in the field of Japanese gardens outside of Japan embarked on an initiative to 

create a network, the North American Japanese Garden Association (NAJGA).


NAJGA is a not for profit organization devoted to connecting people within the network of 

Japanese gardens. Through public education, professional development and research NAJGA 

connects the Horticulture, Human Culture and Business Culture of Japanese gardens in the 

US and Canada.


NAJGA is for everyone who shares an interest in field of Japanese gardens. 

Garden managers, designers, horticulturists, green businesses, educators, students and

the general public are invited to join.

Sansho-En, or the "Garden of Three Islands," brings nature's tranquility to visitors.

The Elizabeth Hubert Malott Japanese Garden is a garden of three islands, with much symbolism in the plants and hardscape elements. With its carefully styled plants and judiciously placed stones, the garden is a tribute to the beauty of pure form.

This garden is a year-round favorite, especially in winter, when the shadows of trees and boulders on the snow create another dimension in the garden.
