The HortiCULTURAL Landscapes Symposium will be held Saturday, April 14, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Dejope Residence Hall, Mendota Room.
Public gardens tell the stories of their communities’ natural and cultural commonwealth. Through the art and science of interpretation, they use these stories to build strong communities through provoking important conversations among their audiences. Through the process of interpretation, people are connected to plants and also to one another. This is the power of public gardens.
The cost is $110 for the general public. CALS faculty, staff and students are eligible for a 20% discount. To receive the discount, register here and use code UW20.

- Shari Edleson | Director of Horticulture and Curator for the Arboretum at Penn State
- Peter Hatch | Emeritus Director of Gardens and Grounds at Monticello
- Ian Simpkins | Deputy Director for Horticulture & Urban Agriculture at Vizcaya Museum and Gardens
- Jeff Downing | Executive Director of Mt. Cuba Center
