On-Demand: Sustainable Community Development

Join us during this webinar to learn more about how your garden can enhance its sustainable community development goals. Gardens across the globe are learning how they can better serve and engage their communities with the goal of increasing visitation, support, and interest in their garden. This might take the shape of working with local community organizations to reach a different demographic, attracting diverse volunteers, school groups, employees, or interns, or partnerships to offer educational content that is more relevant to the community where your garden resides.

Presenters from Queens Botanical Garden, Holden Forests and Gardens, and Chicago Botanic Garden will tell you about their sustainable community development work, which received recognition for excellence through our Sustainability Index.

This webinar series has been generously sponsored by IrisBG.

Presenters in order of appearance:
Alexis Bacon, Program and Member Services Coordinator, American Public Gardens Association
Gennadyi Gurman, Head of Interpretation;
Jasmine McPherson, Intern;
Karen Guzman, Farm Coordinator, Queens Botanical Garden;
Sandra Albro, Director of Community Partnerships, Holden Forests and Gardens;
Jennifer Schwarz, PhD, Vice President, Learning and Engagement, Chicago Botanic Garden
