Climate change, pollinator-species decline, and environmental degradation have become all too familiar themes in our lives and communities. As citizens and as educators, the strategies we deploy, the choices we make, and the values and messages we communicate have the potential for real impact. Providing the next generation with the knowledge and tools to create a sustainable environmental future and finding ways to maintain and grow the gardens and programs that nurture our youth is the focus of the 2019 National Children & Youth Garden Symposium. NCYGS will explore innovative sustainable gardening curriculum and practices, exploring “green” career resources, and highlighting model partnerships for attracting the human, financial, and intellectual capital needed to sustain youth gardening endeavors. Attendees will come away enlivened and energized with a vital set of tools and resources to enable their students to make a difference that counts.
