    Register now for the National Children & Youth Garden Symposium with early bird pricing!

    Do you work with young people in a garden- or nature-based space such as a community garden, nature center, or green schoolyard? Join us for a professional development event where we are cultivating tomorrow's gardeners by energizing, inspiring, and training today's garden educators.

    Registration is open for the American Horticultural Society's 30th National Children & Youth Garden Symposium. This year's symposium will take place in Richmond, Virginia from July 13-15, and will feature 45 educational sessions and inspiring keynote presentations by Rosanna Ayers of the Biomimicry Institute and Carolyn Schuyler of Wildrock Nature Play & Discovery Center. We'll also check out Richmond's lush gardens at our host site, Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden, and nearby Maymont and tour unique school and healing gardens and community-driven urban greenspaces.

    Maximize your stay in the Richmond area with pre- and post-Symposium experiences including a trip to the Norfolk Botanical Gardens featuring the World of Wonders Children's Garden, a welcome reception at the Kent-Valentine House, headquarters of the Virginia Garden Club, and a workshop at the intersection of nature, art, and immigration in America. Space is limited on these tours, so register soon. 

    Lock in early bird pricing - use this link to register online at a discounted rate! Prices increase after Friday, May 13. Need help getting to NCYGS? Scholarship applications are due Friday, April 29.  Contact education@ahsgardening.org with questions.
