Women in Horticulture

Posted By Janice M. Strachan, Tuesday, November 24, 2015

 

I just read an article (posted at http://www.greenhousegrower.com/business-management/kate-santos-presents-new-opportunities-for-the-horticulture-industry-through-her-roles-at-dummen-orange-and-luxflora/) about Dr. Kate Santos. She "has taken on a new role as co-founder of Luxflora, an organization for women in horticulture. ... her goals for Luxflora ...  include developing opportunities for women in the industry to tell their stories, have their voices heard, network with one another and connect with the next generation, as well as the consumers with whom they have so much in common."

My question is: is there a need and interest in having a "Women in Horticulture" group within ASHS? What are the pros and cons?

Or should we form a relationship with Luxflora? Again pros and cons?
