Since 1993 the American Horticultural Society's National Children & Youth Garden Symposium (NCYGS) has led the way in promoting the value of children's gardens and garden-based education. Using a proven train-the-trainer model, this annual event brings together hundreds of educators, garden designers, community leaders, and children's gardening advocates from across North America. The Symposium’s extended reach over the last 21 years exceeds one million children and youth. Join us in inspiring the next generation of gardeners and horticultural leaders by becoming a 2014 Symposium sponsor!
2014 in Columbus
For 2014, NCYGS travels to Columbus to be hosted by Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, a leading horticultural and educational institution nestled in the heart of Ohio’s capital. The Symposium will spotlight several other organizations in the region that have proven records of success with youth gardening education: the Ohio Herb Education Center, The Miami Valley School, Inniswood Metro Gardens, Cox Arboretum Metro Park, Wegerzyn Gardens Metro Park, and Franklin Park Conservatory’s Growing to Green program. Presentations by students, educators, and leading national experts will address a wide variety of topics from implementing innovative programs, activities, and curricula to fundraising and garden design.
• Several levels of sponsorship are available, each with special benefits.
