Long Hill Garden Symposium

May 6 & 7

Long Hill is excited to announce their first annual Garden Symposium! Held over two days (May 6 & 7), this special event brings together an internationally renowned group of plant specialists and horticultural professionals. This unique event will be held across the Long Hill property and asks attendees to think about the plant world in a creative way.  Many events are held in the new Horticultural Learning Campus, giving visitors the opportunity to not only attend the exciting programs, but to explore the stunning gardens and historic home.

The event is broken down into two days: Day 1 features a series of guest speakers, all of which are included with lunch and tea/coffee for a single fee. Day 2 features a series of workshops, which are individually priced. More details can be found below.

We are excited to share both Day One & Day Two of the Symposium are Landscape Architecture Continuing Education credits pending!
