Do you love food? So do most prospective visitors to public gardens. Learn from a panel of experts how to leverage the public's interest in food and agriculture to create inspiring programs. During brief presentations and ensuing discussion, panelists will present a comprehensive framework for contextualizing, planning and executing agriculture related programs in the context of public gardens. Panelists will discuss the potential goals of agriculture programs ranging from displays of crop plants to vocational training to interpretive planning. Cultivate a new generation of garden visitors by showing how we cultivate the land.
