Proposal Submissions

NCYGS has a diverse audience, with classroom teachers, "informal" educators from a variety of organizations, botanical gardens staff, landscape architects, community organizers, and more who work with a wide range of age groups (pre-K through 12th grade). Keep attendees' needs and interests in mind when creating your proposal:

a. Practical value to practitioner - Sessions should focus on information that attendees can take home and apply to their own work.
b. Originality - Most attendees currently work in the field and welcome fresh ideas to invigorate their work. We strive to provide a balanced and diverse program, in terms of topic areas and primary audience.
c. Quality - Proposals should clearly describe the session, with complete and accurate information.
d. Significance to children & youth gardening - All sessions must relate to children & youth gardening (with obvious synergy in areas like healthy eating, trees and nature, sustainability and conservation, etc.).
