Join us for a conversation with Jennifer Jewell, creator and host of the award-winning public radio show and podcast, Cultivating Place, about women who are creating change in the world through careers in horticulture. Jennifer and an impressive panel of horticulture experts will explore big questions about how growing plants can shape and transform individuals, communities, and the environment.

Can transformation in the garden world lead to change in the world at large?
Can cultivating our relationship with plants help us take on the environmental, economic, societal, and individual challenges?
What can diversity and inclusion bring to the world of gardening?
What are the many paths people can take to make a living while cultivating a sustainable, quality life?
