    NCYGS 2017


    NCYGS is the only national event of its kind where you can network with like-minded teachers, garden designers, community leaders, program coordinators, and others involved with connecting kids to the natural world.  NCYGS 2017 attendees will have the opportunity to:

    • Explore topics ranging from curriculum to program management to garden design and maintenance during four dynamic days of educational sessions, field trips, and expert keynote presentations.  July 12 will feature optional pre-symposium trips, while July 13-15 will comprise the main body of the symposium.
    • Experience the vibrant gardening and environmental culture of the green Pacific Northwest.
    • Share ideas, success stories, and inspiration with like-minded colleagues from across the nation.
