Last year, ASLA celebrated World Landscape Architecture Month with the theme Life Grows Here - in the places and spaces that landscape architects create in communities around the world.

This year, we are building on that success with our new campaign: Growing Together.

ASLA’s core vision statement is “healthy, beautiful, and resilient places for all.” This April, we will show how landscape architecture projects embody that vision in all communities – communities of all colors, socioeconomic backgrounds, and ability levels. We want to highlight how the spaces landscape architects create promote and facilitate people growing together with each other & with nature.

Keeping in mind restraints like the ongoing pandemic, this year’s campaign is designed to be flexible, versatile, and on diversity in the landscape architecture profession. It will include:

Local cleanups, organized by ASLA chapters, through our new partnership with’s Great Global Cleanup initiative. Follow our Instagram account throughout the month, as Professional & Student chapters take over to show off their work. Social media contest for student members to showcase high-impact projects in their areas while entering to win a trip to the ASLA Conference on Landscape Architecture in Nashville, TN. “Frame” Yourself on Facebook. More information and material on all of our WLAM events and the Growing Together campaign can be found on the new & improved WLAM web page at
