What techniques have garden directors and PIs found most effective to discuss plant risk, conservaqtion, and related topics with their audeinces and membership? What can CPC learn from their experiences to increase awareness and knowledge of CPC and its misssion and work.
It seems the answer can differ depending on the audience. The value of plants to humankind is often a good starting point – making the argument relevant to us/humanity and not just about the plants is always a good choice. I also believe it is important to accept that not all will be enthusiastic about plants but that we have to keep trying!
