Urban Roots Symposium

As the green heart of North Carolina’s urban research university, the UNC Charlotte Botanical Gardens invites you to join us Saturday, February 1, 2020 for the third Botanical Gardens’ symposium Urban Roots: Transforming the Urban Landscape.

For over 50 years, the UNC Charlotte Botanical Gardens has been the central resource for botanical and horticultural information in and around Charlotte. With over 100 years of combined plant research and growing experience, our staff is uniquely qualified to bring together experts on a wide variety of urban plant-related topics to help people understand our unique place in the plant world. This year the UNC Charlotte Botanical Gardens has brought together a group of speakers who are deeply involved in making our populated environments better places for both people and plants.

This year’s symposium will investigate many important topics for the urban and suburban environment, including urban ecosystems, urban farming, regenerative agriculture and permaculture and more.

Must register by 1/24/20.
