Are you maintaining education programs that were once successful but are no longer popular or don’t ensure the impact you planed for? Many education programs, though longstanding and foundational to public gardens, have been slow to adapt to changing audiences and needs. Join us for a discussion about why programs are suffering in the first place and the steps gardens have taken to successfully assess and reimagine programs to better reach our ever-evolving audiences. Using real-life lessons learned, shine some light on your dusty programs to better determine if they can be rejuvenated or if it’s time to say goodbye.
