There are more than 250 Japanese gardens in Canada and the United States. These gardens are havens of beauty and tranquility, cultural and historic landscapes and places for natural healing.  Since 2011, the North American Japanese Garden Association (NAJGA) has been promoting the welfare of these gardens and the people who love and care for them through education and advocacy.

A biennial conference is in the planning stage for March 7 and 8 at the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens in Delray Beach, Florida. The conference theme is Towards a Healthier World: Japanese Gardens as Places for Wellness and Transformation. For information on invitations for presentations, guidelines and theme, please refer to the NAJGA web site.
