This workshop is not just for Directors. Every team member of your garden plays an important role in developing a culture of philanthropy at your organization. Even those gardens with very small or non-existent boards need to learn how to get key influencers from the community to understand the important mission of your garden, and how they can help you get there. Lunch is included!
