2021 Colonial Williamsburg Garden Symposium – Virtual
April 22, 2021 - April 25, 2021 $150
I have a few things already on my calendar for this weekend, but this symposium has a flexible structure, releasing new talks each day to watch on your schedule.
From the website:
In recognition of Earth Day on April 22, we invite you to join us from your home or garden, as we examine garden designs, gardening practices, and plant choices that embrace nature yet beautify the landscape. Guest speakers and Colonial Williamsburg horticultural staff will share some of their best practices for creating gardens that are sustainable and earth-friendly. While we may not be able to gather in a large group to enjoy this conference together, each conference registrant will receive a multi-day ticket voucher to redeem for a future visit to enjoy our historic and iconic gardens at a time most convenient to you!
After a year where many dove headlong into the art of gardening—many perhaps for the first time—now seems perfect to address the relationship between gardeners and the environments in which they practice their skills. Keynote Speaker, national gardening television host, Joe Lamp’l, will provide practical information to help us all become better, smarter gardeners. Professor and researcher, Doug Tallamy, will share how we are nature’s best hope for biodiversity, and David Mizejewski, spokesperson for the National Wildlife Federation, will share a whole new perspective on gardening.
Award winning authors Anne Spafford and Nancy Lawson will discuss creating successful gardens for pollinators and other wildlife. Our esteemed roster of speakers is rounded out by local garden experts and talented members of Colonial Williamsburg’s landscape and foodways staff, eager to share their horticultural knowledge and skills with you in presentations, demonstrations, and panel discussions. We hope you will join us virtually for the 74th Annual Garden Symposium, April 22-25, 2021 as we Celebrate Planet Earth by Giving Back with Our Gardens.
