So much to learn….so little time. GARDEN TRIBE has the answer! Five-days of nonstop talks by flower and garden experts on topics that are of most interest to gardeners today.

Since the beginning, gardening know-how has been passed from person-to-person, side-by-side, in the garden. GARDEN TRIBE in an online education resource that delivers the tradition of learning together using the technology of our time. Co-founders Jen and Beth bring you the passionate experts; you do the growing.
