It has become apparent that there is need for actionable steps that member institutions can take to become more welcoming for their visitors, staff, and volunteers. The “Creating a More Diverse, Equitable, and Inclusive Garden” workshop was born from this need. Based in positive organizational scholarship, this workshop has been developed so that any garden can adapt the activities based on their particular needs and resources, resulting in manageable action steps towards becoming more diverse and inclusive. The workshop is fueled by positive thinking, collaboration from all departments and stakeholders, and creativity.
