    The American Horticultural Society (AHS), founded in 1922, is an educational, non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization that recognizes and promotes excellence in American horticulture. One of the oldest and most prestigious gardening organizations, AHS is dedicated to making America a nation of gardeners, a land of gardens. Its mission is to open the eyes of all Americans to the vital connection between people and plants, to inspire all Americans to become responsible caretakers of the Earth, to celebrate America’s diversity through the art and science of horticulture; and to lead this effort by sharing the Society’s unique national resources with all Americans.

    River Farm, the AHS’s 25-acre headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia is open Monday through Friday year-round, and Saturday mornings April through September. Once part of George Washington's holdings, the picturesque property overlooking the Potomac River includes an early 20th-century mansion and an artful blend of naturalistic and formal garden areas. Rotating art exhibits are open to the public in the estate house. River Farm is available for weddings, corporate retreats, and other events.
