APGA: Garden Paths Conference

APGA: Garden Paths Conference

Jun 20, 2012| by administrator

This year you won’t have to travel around the world to find some of the most beautifully designed gardens, sure to inspire a love for nature and an appreciation of the struggles that come with preserving it. Holbrook Travel is at the 2012 APGA Conference: Garden Paths, in Columbus, Oh. from June 19 to June 22.

Public gardens are considered to be at a crossroads and must make a decision as to what the future holds for them.  Be prepared to be challenged and asked to provide solutions to the enduring problems of sustaining public gardens in the face of shrinking budgets and a fragile planet.  The conference will force individuals to make difficult and radical decisions to plow a path toward a more focused future for public gardens.

Sandy Schmidt, Senior Travel Consultant and Gardens Tour Director, is representing Holbrook Travel at the conference with her extensive knowledge on gardens.

Visit The Dawes Arboretum, the Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, and The Ohio State University (OSU) Chadwick Arboretum and Learning Gardens to witness tamed nature in all its pristine glory.  Guest speaker Brian Unger, host of the History Channel’s hit TV series How the States Got Their Shapes, will be at the conference on Thursday, June 21 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:45 p.m.

Holbrook Travel continues to help individuals gain an understanding of nature, and the need to preserve all that we can. Stop by booth 15 and say hello if you're in Columbus!
