As we are all pressed for time, it can be tricky to stay informed. Each week we select one article or blog post that takes under five minutes to read. These "reads" cover the topics of botany, women in industry, horticulture, nature, and history. We are always looking for the next "Five Minute Read", so email with your great suggestion!
How do I find time to read?
Start small! Check out the Five Minute Reads section, or make a daily habit of reading for just ten minutes a day. You'll be through a book in no time, and be a little smarter too!
You bet! We aim to meet two times per year to discuss both historic and contemporary works that reflect the values and stories of our membership. See below for more details about our current read.

If you have read a great book lately on any topic included under the umbrella of "Women in Horticulture" send us your book review on it! We'll publish your name with the review, so you get all the credit for your suggestion.
