As we celebrate #InternationalWomensDay, hear from urban farmer, community gardener, activist, and NYBG Trustee Karen Washington as she delivers welcoming remarks for Women’s History Month and introduces the Garden’s virtual program, exploring and showcasing the influential contributions of women to botany, gardening, food justice, and more.

Learn about this month’s digital programming, including historical accounts of pioneering women botanists; spotlights on the careers of contemporary scientists in the field, the lab, and the classroom; and the hands-on work of women in Bronx urban farms and community gardens.
