The Future of the Urban Jungle: Creating a Resilient Workforce (Day 1: Virtual)
Gardens are dynamic spaces that improve our mental and physical health, provide beauty, build ecosystems, increase the value of our communities, and grace us with endless environmental benefits. Without dedicated stewards, these spaces lack the care they desperately need in order to thrive.
Join us we kick off our annual horticulture symposium, The Future of the Urban Jungle: Creating a Resilient Workforce, with a day of virtual programming over Zoom that is centered around growing our green community to become more resilient, diverse, and mindful.
