HOST AN EVENT
SUPPORT WOMEN IN HORTICULTURE
If you would like to host an event, we will find a format to match your venue.
We are always planning our next Women in Horticulture Event. Hosts can work with our team to create an event that reflects the values and interests of your organization and supports women in horticulture. Event formats include: garden tours, professional skill workshops, lectures, industry networking, volunteering, and casual "happy hours". Below are some examples of past events.
If interested in hosting an event, we welcome the opportunity to work with you and appreciate your interest.
Contact our Program Director, Kate Galer, at KateSGaler@gmail.com to start the conversation!

Kendal Crosslands Arboretum, Networking Event
Our first formal networking event was hosted by Kendal Crosslands Arboretum. Attendees were treated by generous hosts Eve and Ellen to light fair, wonderful conversation, and a tour of the unique grounds at the Arboretum. Connections were made, and many of these attendees have frequented other Women in Horticulture events!
