Session 1: Civic Engagement Through Gentle Convincement: A Public Garden’s Reach Should (and Can) Exceed Its Grasp R. Humphrey, Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden, Richmond, Virginia Session 2: Governmental Relations: Are They Necessary for Small Public Garden Success or Just an Illusion? J.E. Ross, Houston Botanic Garden, Houston, Texas, T. Lasseigne, Ph.D., Tulsa Botanical Garden, Tulsa, Oklahoma, M.E. Olien, Green Spring Gardens, Alexandria, Virginia

Session 1: Civic Engagement Through Gentle Convincement: A Public Garden’s Reach Should (and Can) Exceed Its Grasp When a public garden—based on the merits of its displays, collections, environmental stewardship and intellectual capital—is the region’s center for horticultural expertise, how does its devotion to excellence extend beyond its walls, to improve the region’s quality of life? With limited resources, you can reach out and wrap your arms around an affinity group of urban greening organizations. Transform your garden’s social and intellectual capital into a powerful force for change. Learn how to focus the power of your garden’s community profile to ignite more action and spark cross-sector cooperation that builds the network of urban greening “can-doers.”

Session 2: Governmental Relations: Are They Necessary for Small Public Garden Success or Just an Illusion? Well-honed governmental relations are not an illusion, but a necessary task for public garden success. Leaders from a start-up, a developing and an established public garden describe the impact of governmental relations on their success. Participants will better understand the need and process to cultivate and grow relationships with elected officials and government leaders. Methods and goals of governmental relations programs will expand the participants’ knowledge of these processes. Participants will share their stories and gather new ideas.
