Make the most of the research at your garden by sharing it with the public! Learn about the ways three gardens created programs that combined research with education and outreach activities for a variety of audiences. Share your own experiences and learn from colleagues as you create your own collaboration plan. You’ll leave this interactive presentation with examples, contacts, and concrete ideas for working successfully with scientists and horticulturists to engage the public.
