Our Partners


Our movement was founded in 2013 by Longwood Gardens and the American Society for Horticultural Science. We have grown to more than 200 endorsing partners. We are teaming up to increase public awareness of the positive attributes of horticulture. We want our educators, public service workers, students, 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.
