A Meeting of the Minds at the 2018 NCYGS

Ithaca, NY

Terra’s Cindy Tyler attended the 2018 AHS National Children & Youth Garden Symposium, an annual gathering-of-the-minds where garden designers, teachers, community leaders, and program coordinators convene around the central mission of connecting kids to their natural world.

Cindy participated in the panel discussion Equitable Access to the Garden, along with Duron Chavis from Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden and Rebecca Lemos-Otero from the City Blossoms program. She also assisted our friends from Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, Mark Miller and Jenny Pope, as they led a workshop on community engagement while planning a garden - a key component to our design of the Scotts Miracle-Gro Foundation Children’s Garden!
