Our Partners

We need plant mentors, and we need your help to develop the next generation of horticulturists.

Our movement was founded by Longwood Gardens and the American Society for Horticultural Science.  We have quickly grown to more than 150 endorsing partners, and along with FleishmanHillard and Scholastic, we are teaming up to increase public awareness of the positive attributes of horticulture. We want our educators, public service workers, students with an aptitude for plant science or plant artistry, and the general public to view horticulture as a vital, viable, and vibrant career path. This task will require a concerted and coordinated effort on the part of all those within the horticulture sector, including industry, associations, organizations, public gardens, elementary and secondary schools, colleges, universities, and governmental agencies.

We gratefully acknowledge the generous contributions from our partners.
