Brooklyn Botanic Garden is host to the Ecological Landscape Alliance (ELA) fourth annual Ecological Plant Conference
As environmental pressures mount, it is refreshing to take time from busy schedules to surround ourselves with beauty and learn lessons toward more resilient design solutions. Join us for a day at Brooklyn Botanic Garden with friends and colleagues who share your passion for plants and the planet.
Five plant masters will educate, delight, and inspire us: Ethan Dropkin, Shannon Currey, Justin Bowers, Michael Nadeau, and Carolyn Summers.
Mark your calendars and register early for this sell-out conference!
