From the Ground Up

Keeping Horticulture Alive through Grounds and Infrastructure Management

Horticulture, Greenhouses, & Facilities Community Symposium
October 9-12, 2018 | Tulsa, OK and Bentonville, AR
Hosted by: Tulsa Botanic Garden and Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art


This year’s Horticulture, Greenhouses, & Facilities Community symposium, “From the Ground Up” is focused on practical approaches to resolving issues that all gardens, whether big, small, new or historic need to successfully address in order to achieve excellence in operations and displays. The presentations will highlight current trends, strategies, and philosophies addressing a wide range of topics such as organic gardening, parking, garden renovations, disaster response, gardening and educating with native plants, prescribed burning, new insect pests, and infrastructure maintenance. Gardens that can improve their operational systems and strategic approaches related to these topics can better deliver upon their mission statements and provide a more aesthetic, safe, educational, and pleasing experience for visitors.

Please note that the symposium will be taking place in 2 separate locations and we have discounted room blocks in Tulsa, OK the night of October 9 and in Bentonville, AR the nights of October 10 & 11.

Symposium attendees will receive a distinctive cultural experience and in-depth profile of two of the country’s newest public gardens: Tulsa Botanic Garden and Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art.
