Harness the power of your peers! Public gardens of all shapes and sizes can benefit from seeking expert opinions. Professionals from many diverse gardens will share their experiences with peer reviews as tools for institutional assessment, discovery, and change. Learn about the types of reviews and their benefits. Speakers will share practical tools, lessons learned, strategies for recruiting and orienting panelists, and ways to implement recommendations. This highly adaptable process can be scaled up and/or down to match organizational strategy, needs, 
and budget.
