The complete-and-ready reference for establishing, managing, and running a successful and sustainable, profitable public garden

As unique museums with living collections of plants, public gardens offer visitors aesthetically beautiful landscapes combined with educational programming and scientific research that promote the value and understanding of plants. In the twenty-first century, public gardens are in the forefront of organizations and institutions committed to promoting the conservation of plants and their habitats, developing sustainable practices that support the environment, and providing green spaces where our increasingly stressed and urbanized citizens can reconnect with the natural world. It is critically important that such institutions have trained, knowledgeable staff members. Because of its comprehensive examination of public gardens, "Public Garden Management" is the ideal guide for staff members at public gardens, anyone considering a career in public gardens, groups starting a botanical garden or arboretum, and students discovering how these complex institutions work.

"Public Garden Management" is an all-in-one professional reference and textbook that clearly shows how to develop, establish, manage, and maintain a sustainable--both economically and environmentally--public garden. Offering practical coverage of relevant topics, along with useful tools for reinforcing study, this insightful and forward-thinking guide is:

Copublished by the American Public Gardens Association

Written by a panel of leading experts in the field

Filled with dozens of case studies that are real-world illustrations of the principles explored in the text

Illustrated throughout with line drawings, figures, and photographs that assist in conveying critical information

Students and professionals will benefit greatly from the management principles outlined in this book, helping them establish and maintain new and existing public gardens that engage, inspire, and connect with their communities.
