Where Horticulture and Humanity Meet

Horticulture is a great connector, existing at the point where the human condition and natural world converge. Whether medicinal, ornamental, edible or environmental—the industry’s impact reaches further and farther than ever before. The aesthetic wonders of foliage large and small fuel the soul, while the holistic properties of flora help heal the mind and body.

As the climate changes, technology advances, and the world around us evolves, we are drawn back to our roots. We recognize that the line separating plants and people grows ever thinner as horticulture strengthens the harmony between humans and nature.

Immerse yourself in the beauty of the biosphere as we explore how local and global innovations, experiences, and expectations collide to push us toward a bolder, brighter future of growth.

We are at war with ourselves and nature.
The climate crisis is worsening as greenhouse gas emissions continue to rise. Global temperature is likely to reach the critical 1.5 °C tipping point above pre-industrial levels by 2035. Heat waves, droughts, flooding and wildfires have become far too frequent. Rising sea levels are already threatening hundreds of millions of people in coastal communities.
