Engaging Families in Growing the Next Generation of Gardeners
04/05/2022 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm
Our customers come to us at key moments in their lives… wanting to teach their children where food comes from, landscaping a new home, or buying their first houseplant. These touchpoints provide opportunities to deepen customer relationships and provide education for longtime gardening success – especially for youth and family.
Join us for the AmericanHort webinar, Engaging Families in Growing the Next Generation of Gardeners, during National Kids Gardening Month to learn how garden retailers can inspire and support the youth and family gardening movement while creating customers and land stewards for life.
Presented by KidsGardening, this 90-minute workshop will:
- Give you tips to create family-friendly spaces at your garden center
- Talk about the best youth gardening products
- Share details on three highly popular kids’ gardening activities you can easily implement with limited resources
- Cover best practices for creating opportunities and experiences to engage family audiences
You will also have the opportunity to share ideas, challenges, and successes in reaching this audience while learning from others during small break-out groups as we work to build and strengthen your community of independent garden retailers.
This webinar is provided complimentary to the entire green industry
