Public Gardens & First Nation’s Organizations: Public gardens and First Nation’s organizations have many immediate, compelling and multi-generational goals in common. These range from plant awareness and identification, environmental and culturally appropriate knowledge exchange to restoration ecology, habitat preservation, environmental justice, sustainable life-ways and training the next generation of citizens and leaders. Relatively few public gardens and First Nation’s organizations have explored long-term collaborative gardens and programs that benefit all visitors.That’s changing – find out why. Tribal community and garden individuals will present what’s working and ways forward from urban centers to reservations.
