According to the organizers:
This year’s conference theme is inspired by BBG’s newly opened Shelby White and Leon Levy Water Garden. The Water Garden, which includes a pond, rock weir and forebay, brook, and riparian plantings, is a part of the ongoing, multifaceted Water Conservation Project. The first such project of its scale and complexity in North America, it promises to serve as a model for reducing dependence on freshwater and lessening combined sewer overflow. With a day of workshops, panel discussions, films, and more, “Connecting the Drops” will give special attention to water wisdom, interconnectedness, and citizen action.
