Celebrating Crop Diversity: Connecting Agriculture, Public Gardens, and Science

Food & Agriculture Symposium

April 2- April 4, 2019

Hosted by World Food Prize Foundation and Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden 

This symposium has been made possible by a grant project funded by the United States Department of Agriculture-National Institute of Food and Agriculture. Generous support also provided by Leichtag Commons and the U.S Botanic Garden.


This rare opportunity has been made possible by a unique collaboration between the American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America, the American Public Gardens Association, and the World Food Prize Foundation to bring together the public garden world and the agro-ecosystem research community. This symposium and accompanying projects will capitalize on a systematic connection between public gardens and the agro-ecosystem communities to significantly enhance the value of the U.S. agricultural and horticultural research and education.
