Only one week left until the symposium on March 3rd, 2017! This year’s symposium, Growing Together: Cultivating Change in the Economic Landscape, brings together a variety of speakers to discuss the economic impacts of public gardens.
Registration for the symposium is $119, with a student pricing of $59! If you can’t make it in person, consider joining us via interactive live webinar, where a Fellow will be available to moderate, take questions, and engage the audience in discussion.
We are also pleased to announce the 2017 Longwood Graduate Program Symposium Travel Awardees, who will join the us to learn about economic impacts of public gardens, and to make connections in the public horticulture field.
