The Longwood Graduate Program at the University of Delaware has announced that its 2013 symposium, “Shifting Landscapes: Cultivating Connections with a Broader Community,” will be held Friday, March 15, at Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, Pa.
The symposium will focus on one of the greatest challenges that public gardens face today — remaining relevant within their communities.
Societal behaviors constantly shift with changes in local demographics, generational preferences and cultural traditions yet seldom are these social patterns reflected in the audience of the public garden.
By presenting some of the brightest minds in public horticulture, social cohesion, environmental psychology and education, the symposium will explore how public gardens can integrate a broader audience into their garden and become an invaluable asset to all of society.
Registration will be open until March 8.
