In July and August 2020, the Garden Conservancy and Lord Cultural Resources presented some of the most preeminent thought leaders in the gardening world in a four-part, biweekly webinar series, Gardens for a Changing World, to explore the new role of gardens in our changing world.
The series was designed to stimulate thoughtful conversations about the role of gardens, both private and public, in a world that is experiencing seismic ecological, economic, social, and cultural change.
