Chicago Urban Gardening

The day to day experiences of a University of Illinois Extension Urban Horticulture Educator in Chicago, Illinois

National Children and Youth Garden Symposium

Posted by Ron Wolford -

Join educators, garden designers, and children's garden advocates for the American Horticultural Society's 15th annual National Children & Youth Garden Symposium, "Widening the Circle," hosted by the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum's Public Policy Programs in Chaska, Minnesota on July 19-21, 2007.

Hear from voices young and old as the circle widens to look at fresh approaches and expanded audiences for children and youth programs. From non-traditional classrooms to interdisciplinary studies, and making a difference beyond the confines of the classroom walls, this symposium will offer a breadth of inspiration for children's gardening advocates.

Come discover "who is teaching who" as youth share their experiences of teaching and leading children's garden programs. Listen and learn as the circle continues to grow, gathering people from across the nation from various institutions, traditions, and cultures, to exchange ideas for programs in children and youth gardening.
