Internationally-inspired Gardens Educate, Connect, and Delight: Public gardens have the capacity to enrich their communities by demonstrating the plants and cultures of other countries. The University of Washington Botanical Garden has a garden demonstrating a part of the south island of New Zealand; Como Park Zoo and Conservatory has a Japanese Garden that honors the relationship of St. Paul and Nagasaki and Olbrich Botanical Gardens's Thai Pavilion and Garden honors the University of Wisconsin's relationship with its Thai alumni. Representatives of each garden will tell the story of their Gardens, the community it is connected to and the community in which it is rooted. The panelists will emphasize the cultural ties leading to the international garden and ongoing efforts to maintain its authenticity.
