GWA: The Association of Garden Communicators

GWA: The Association for Garden Communicators Conference & Expo is coming to Buffalo August 4-8.  Each year, hundreds of professionals from across the country attend the largest gathering of garden writers, bloggers, photographers, speakers and industry thought-leaders in the country, the GWA Annual Conference & Expo. 

The conference includes public and private garden tours, education sessions, exhibit hall, and events supported by GWA membership with support from collaborators in our region, including PlantWNY, Plantasia, Visit Buffalo Niagara, and Gardens Buffalo Niagara.  The Botanical Gardens will also host a cocktail reception for #GWA2017 attendees during the conference.
