Our Partners

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

With support from four additional signing partners and over 150 endorsing partners, Longwood Gardens, the American Society for Horticultural Science (ASHS), FleishmanHillard, and Scholastic 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.
