ABOUT OUR VIRTUAL PROGRAMS
Garden Conservancy virtual programs aim to offer our members opportunities for online engagement, while addressing some of the seismic changes—ecological, economic, social, and cultural—that the world is experiencing today and exploring how these changes interact with the world of gardens. We presented our first webinar series, Gardens for a Changing World, in partnership with Lord Cultural Resources in July and August 2020. Our Fall 2020 Literary Series featured biweekly online conversations with seven prominent garden writers.
In response to the popularity of our virtual programs, we are continuing to offer online learning experiences, showcasing even more voices from the garden world.
