American Public Gardens Association Annual Conference

Everyday Magic Theme

Every day, you and your colleagues work hard to transform individual elements – a class, a seed, a tour – into an overall offering that is meaningful and impactful to your visitors, your community and even the world beyond. We all have to use a bit of “magic” in this process.

Magic is more than luck; it’s the perfect combination of factors that make what had been thought impossible, possible: creating a world-class botanic garden in the dry, high-altitude steppe; removing barriers of access to fresh produce in urban “food deserts”; or leading a regional embrace of water-efficient landscaping practices. Pulling off such acts is no small feat, but such accomplishments by garden professionals have the power to transform the communities we work in and the people we reach.

Meet the 2014 Program Selection Committee

The Program Selection Committee is responsible for soliciting, developing, reviewing and evaluating programs (workshops, sessions, informal discussion groups, posters) to be presented at the annual conference. The committee is also a resource for those who wish to submit a session proposal.
