    We are grateful to our 2018 NCYGS event sponsors this year, especially our Diamond Sponsor Ball Horticultural.  Sponsorship opportunities are still available at many levels to support NCYGS programming and scholarships for educators from across the country. 

    Join us to network with like-minded teachers, garden designers, community leaders, program coordinators, and others involved with connecting kids to the natural world.  NCYGS 2018 attendees will have the opportunity to:

    • Explore topics ranging from curriculum to program management to garden design and maintenance during four dynamic days of educational sessions, field trips, and expert keynote presentations.  July 11 will feature optional pre-symposium trips, while July 12-14 will comprise the main body of the symposium.
    • Experience Central New York's breathtaking natural beauty and the world renowned facilities of Cornell University.
    • Share ideas, success stories, and inspiration with like-minded colleagues from across the nation.
