Let’s Gather – Join us in Richmond!


We’re looking forward to an in-person conference where we can learn from each other in face-to-face interactive and hands-on ways, visit and tour gardens and greenspaces, and network in both the facilitated and unfacilitated ways that conferences provide.

Mark your calendar for July 13-15, 2022 to join us for the 30th annual National Children & Youth Garden Symposium in Richmond, Virginia.
