Have you considered the impact your garden has on local and regional economic health? Gardens occupy a unique place in the cultural, environmental, and economic landscape, and the reach your garden has can be bigger than you think. Join this Sustainability webinar to hear about the work being done at three institutions that influences their local and regional economies. From attracting tourists to collaborations with local municipalities to job creation and professional development, the sky's the limit for the positive impacts and change your garden can inspire. We hope you come away from this webinar with ideas for partnerships and collaborations you can implement to create an even bigger economic impact in your area!
