National Children and Youth Garden Symposium

Mon, 07/31/2017 - 6:13am
Thursday, July 13, 2017 - Saturday, July 15, 2017 (all day event)

Summer is almost here!  We hope your plans include joining us for the 25th National Children & Youth Garden Symposium (NCYGS)!  The deadline for online registration has been extended until Monday, June 26 (a nod to our educator friends - we know the end of the school year is busy)!  Registration onsite at the Hilton Vancouver, WA will also be available.

NCYGS is a one-of-a-kind professional development event for garden designers, public garden and school garden educators, parents, and anyone else who wants to learn more about getting kids excited about gardening and caring for the earth.

Learning doesn't stop during the summer, right?  Attend educational sessions that will answer the following questions and many more.

  • Where do the Maker and Local Food Movements intersect with youth gardening?
  • How can we make gardens inclusive, culturally-responsive, and allergen-free environments?
  • Who are Citizen Scientists and Plant Heros and how might they become the horticulture industry leaders of tomorrow?
  • What types of grants, corporate sponsorships, community partnerships, and micro-enterprise opportunities exist for funding youth gardening?

In addition to our educational sessions, excursions to local botanical, therapy, and school gardens, and fun keynote presentations, NCYGS has a lot more to offer:

  • a bookstore with a carefully-curated collection of brand new fiction and non-fiction titles and the ever-popular half-price table!
  • a farmers market just steps away on Saturday morning (and a break in the schedule to encourage a visit).
  • raffles and door prizes of great books and gardening swag from generous local companies Timber Press, Nature Play Sign, and Portland Nursery.
  • discounts at local shops, eateries, and transportation services, courtesy of Visit Vancouver.
