Garden + Funder + Community-Based Organization: A Model for Taking Your Garden to Places it Has Never Been Before! Discover how three organizations collaborated successfully to build a children's hands-on plant science program. The Scotts Miracle Gro Company, The Fishing School and the U.S. Botanic Garden together built a new community which roots young people in the natural world and creates mission driven programs in order to reach an atypical (underserved) audience. Participants will explore a successful blueprint transferrable to their organization and be challenged to identify potential funders and collaborators in their community.
