Event Description

Summer is almost here!  We hope your plans include joining us for the 25th National Children & Youth Garden Symposium (NCYGS)!  The deadline for online registration has been extended until Monday, June 26 (a nod to our educator friends - we know the end of the school year is busy)!  Registration onsite at the Hilton Vancouver, WA will also be available.

NCYGS is a one-of-a-kind professional development event for garden designers, public garden and school garden educators, parents, and anyone else who wants to learn more about getting kids excited about gardening and caring for the earth.

Learning doesn't stop during the summer, right?  Attend educational sessions that will answer the following questions and many more.

  • Where do the Maker and Local Food Movements intersect with youth gardening?
  • How can we make gardens inclusive, culturally-responsive, and allergen-free environments?
  • Who are Citizen Scientists and Plant Heros and how might they become the horticulture industry leaders of tomorrow?
  • What types of grants, corporate sponsorships, community partnerships, and micro-enterprise opportunities exist for funding youth gardening?

In addition to our educational sessions, excursions to local botanical, therapy, and school gardens, and fun keynote presentations, NCYGS has a lot more to offer:

Please email with any questions.
