We often have more ideas or opportunities than we have time, staff, and funding to implement. When something is just too good to pass up we are called to creatively fill in those resource gaps. During this Town Hall meeting, three colleagues will share stories of how they rose to the occasion by identifying staff, time, and/or resources in non-traditional ways. Short presentations will be followed by break-out sessions to discuss and share how your gardens have approached similar situations.
