Which Garden Path Will You Take?

Public gardens are being asked to define, examine and refocus in order to answer to many stakeholders, a diverse community, shrinking budgets and a fragile planet in crisis. This complex set of circumstances place gardens at a crossroads: the responsibilities that lie in the past no longer apply to the numerous challenges and demands that face public gardens at this moment in time.

The Garden Paths 2012 APGA Conference in Columbus, Ohio, June 19-22, will place focus on the task of examining the demands and opportunities gardens are facing today, creating a place to pause… to make both difficult and radical choices, to reflect on the identity of the public garden, and to choose a proper path that leads to a truer, more focused mission. Together, APGA and garden professionals will ask tough questions, unearth new solutions, and forge new ways forward. 2012 Conference Video
