Who is your community? People? Plants? Habitats?
This compelling session explores how gardens push the limits of what true community engagement can mean. Gardens make a difference globally, by setting standards and developing programs that promote global plant conservation. They serve and connect with people who are disadvantaged, underserved, and under pressure. Horticulture and urban agriculture can be a gateway to a new career, or the plants themselves can provide profound benefits to local economies. The ideas you’ll gain from this session will directly impact your conservation, education, and community outreach programs. You won’t want to miss it.
There is no cost to attend the session only portion of this event. To attend the dinner there is a small fee of $40 for attendees and $60 for guests. Registration is required for both.
