Women in Hort Events
NETWORKING ACTIVITIES AND
CONNECTIONS AND MENTORSHIPS
Providing a place to connect with other professionals and cultivate mentorship relations. We aim to connect mentors with mentees and encourage co-mentoring.
We strive to provide a variety of networking events for Women in Horticulture in the Delaware Valley. Our aim is to rotate the location and style of events; from round tables, to garden tours, to networking events. By changing venues, and formats our goal is to ensure that all advocates of Women in Horticulture find a comfortable and convenient place to expand their connections.
Women in Horticulture
We hope to give back to our community, as Women in Horticulture grows, by volunteering with our colleagues to support local horticulture organizations.
