Each cohort selects a single project that meaningfully contributes to the public horticulture leadership conversation.
Thank you to the many American Public Gardens Association members who submitted ideas for the Longwood Fellows’ cohort project while at the Association’s annual conference this past June. More than 50 topics were submitted and the Fellows have chosen to research, write, and publish an Organizational Asessment Resource for Senior-Level Leaders. More information on the resource will be available soon.
Each cohort of Fellows works collectively on a single project that spans the duration of the 13-month Program. The project contributes, in some tangible and meaningful way, to the leadership conversation occurring in public horticulture. Project topics may be generated by the Fellows, suggested by Longwood or a horticulture partner, or identified by a public horticulture professional.
Pending acceptance, Fellows present the results of their project at the annual conference of the American Public Gardens Association. The scope and relevance of the project will be commensurate with the effort required to produce an article for publication.
