Symposium: A Passion for Plants

A day-long symposium featuring speakers selected for their unique professional experience and perspective on garden design and horticulture. Following the symposium, attendees enjoy cocktails in the garden and early buying from the numerous vendors specializing in rare and unusual plants (the plant sale is open to the public as well as GSW ticket holders on Sunday). On Sunday, the Garden Conservancy Open Days program features local private gardens. Complete information may be found on our website.

Speaking at the Symposium will be Sarah Price (pictured), one of Britain’s most prominent and distinctive garden designers; Kelly Norris, director of horticulture at Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden; Lynden Miller, public garden designer in New York City and Taylor Johnston and Ed Bowen of Issima. Barbara Robinson will also be introducing her new book, Heroes of Horticulture.
