Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden is hosting a two day symposium dedicated to discovering the possibilities and rewards of urban greening projects and the many forms they take. Running August 4-5th the first day of the symposium actually begins in late afternoon and runs till 9pm at night, perhaps making it easier for some who work a 9-5 type job to attend. You can click on Ginter's link to get the full schedule and to register. http://www.lewisginter.org/adult-education/GreenTonic.php .
Advance registration is required, and the cost for the event is $75. This cost includes multiple workshops, some A list speakers, as well as dinner Tuesday evening, morning coffee, and lunch Wednesday. One thing not included in this cost is the Tuesday evening bus tour where you can see first hand some of Richmond's most successful community gardens and greening projects. Those who do not wish to pay the additional $20 for the bus tour will have the opportunity to tour the botanical garden on their own or participate in a guided tour of it's own beautiful grounds.
