Horticulture EVENTS

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.

Our activities for 2019 will center around "Career Building" for our membership. At our annual planning meeting, the membership decided that our priority should be focusing on the skill sets we need to advance our careers. This parallels with the expansion and growth of Women in Horticulture as an organization in the coming year. We hope that you will attend these events, but also that you share what your professional training needs are by emailing WomeninHort@gmail.com. Thank you for your support!

Providing a place to connect with other professionals and cultivate mentorship relations. We aim to connect mentors with mentees and encourage co-mentoring. 



We hope to give back to our community, as Women in Horticulture grows, by volunteering with our colleagues to support local horticulture organizations.

Are you confused about how to start saving for retirement?  Are you looking for ways to pay off debt, to save more, or start or add to a college fund?  


Many horticulture professionals work for small businesses or non-profits and need guidance with financial planning. Join fellow Women in Hort for a free seminar offered by Gerry O’ Neill of GJOFinancial (www.gjofinancial.com) on how to get your financial house in order and optimize your earnings.  In addition to being a financial advisor, Gerry is a part-time teacher at LaSalle University and is interested in educating and informing people about their financial options. Gerry was recommended by a fellow woman in hort.
