For the first time in conference history the National Children & Youth Garden Symposium, NCYGS, is coming to Texas!
NCYGS is the only national event of its kind where you can network with like-minded teachers, garden designers, community leaders, program coordinators, and others involved with connecting kids to the natural world. Take advantage of NCYGS coming to Austin and be sure to SAVE the DATE (July 9-11, 2015) for an energizing, inspirational & idea-generating conference.
This conference is coordinated by the American Horticulture Society. The Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center & the International Junior Master Gardener Program are the co-hosts for this year's event. There will be a bounty of fantastic sessions/workshops, field trips, keynotes and many other special events! Junior Master Gardener (JMG) Program Coordinator, Lisa Whittlesey, will have a keynote presentation and a complete strand during the conference focused on JMG and the new, exciting, research-based & “ground-breaking” curriculum to be released in June - “Learn, Grow, Eat & Go!”
