At UW Botanic Gardens, we are thinking deeply about the mission of our organization and public gardens as a whole. As a public garden, it is vital that we work with integrity to serve all communities and make sure our spaces and programs are welcoming and relevant to all. This free speaker series explores how gardens like ours can evolve to meet community needs today and in the future.

Whether you are a long-time friend of public gardens or someone who does not find value or comfort in a typical American public garden setting, we invite you to this conversation so we can jointly chart a path forward. Come to hear exciting perspectives and ideas from local community members and explore opportunities for public gardens to grow in new directions.
