The second annual Women in Horticulture Week, from 30 May until 5 June, honours, promotes and supports incredible female professionals and their achievements in the horticulture industry.
“We are living in a new world, a world in which women play a crucial role in all aspects of business. We are not only entrepreneurs, growers, researchers, marketers, and employees but also continue to be the largest consumers of garden products,” says Katie Dubow, president of Garden Media Group.
Women in Hort week is about celebrating community, building each other up, and growing diversity within the horticulture industry.
Julie Bare, president of the non-profit group Women in Horticulture, celebrating its 5th anniversary, says it’s her peers and mentors within the field that have helped her grow professionally and also personally. “The women in our group celebrate you when you succeed and are there to support you when you need it. Everyone needs community, and I am happy that Women in Hort can serve a role within the larger horticulture community.”
