Demographics of Gardening

February 15, 2005

I have been a speaker at several symposia and as I stand at the podium it is obvious to me what the demographics of garden are: It is middle-age white women. That seems to be the majority in the audience. You may argue that more men mow the lawn than women and I would say that lawn care should not be grouped with real gardening. Of course there are exceptions to every rule but someone in my position needs to take these things into consideration so I can target my programs for my audience effectively. Any other opinions or anyone like to expound on this topic or know of any studies?
