Colonial Williamsburg to host 70th Garden Symposium

“Gardens We Call Home: Insights from the Trailblazers and Trendsetters”

Colonial Williamsburg hosts its 70th garden symposium April 24-26. For its 70th anniversary, Garden Symposium is partnering with the Garden Club of Virginia and the American Horticultural Society to offer an extraordinary garden experience, with special focus on art in the garden, which complements the theme of the Garden Club of Virginia’s Historic Garden Week. Lecturers will discuss planting for architectural interest, plants with style, perennials, foliage plants and foodscaping.

Guest presenters include Joe Lamp’l, the trailblazing host of the popular television garden program “Growing a Greener World,” nationally recognized author and lecturer Kerry Mendez, and the trendsetting horticulturists Brie Arthur and Kelly Norris. They, along with Colonial Williamsburg landscape professionals and other garden experts, will share practical information for transforming the home garden into a personal oasis.

Registrants will have the opportunity to tour Colonial Williamsburg gardens and the gardens on the Historic Garden Week tour. Attendees must be preregistered for the symposium. One-day or deluxe three-day tickets are available. Registration is available here or by calling 800-603-0948 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday-Friday.
