AHS National Children & Youth Garden Symposium

Jul 13 2022 - Jul 15 2022


Do you work with young people in a garden- or nature-based space such as a community garden, nature center, or green schoolyard? The American Horticultural Society's 30th National Children & Youth Garden Symposium will cultivate tomorrow's gardeners by energizing, inspiring, and training today's garden educators.

This year's symposium will take place in Richmond, Virginia from July 13-15, and will feature 45 educational sessions and inspiring keynote presentations by Rosanna Ayers of the Biomimicry Institute and Carolyn Schuyler of Wildrock Nature Play & Discovery Center. We'll also check out Richmond's lush gardens at our host site, Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden, and nearby Maymont and tour unique school and healing gardens and community-driven urban greenspaces. Learn more here.
