CareerNext defines tracks to professional livelihoods in the world of ornamental horticulture. This one-day powerhouse lineup of garden media superstars is designed for students looking to grow education into stable jobs in the industry, veteran communicators looking to redefine career goals and confident professionals diversifying their toolbox with state-of-the-art media awareness.

Our speakers include Katie Elzer-Peters, The Garden of Words LLC, horticulturist, digital marketing specialist and book project manager; Chris Freimuth, founder of CF Gardens, a design, installation and maintenance firm in New York City; Tony Bertauski, horticulture program director, Trident Technical College, Charleston, South Carolina; Kyle Barnett, executive director of the Charleston Horticultural Society.

If you're a garden designer, garden historian, garden club member, garden writer, grower, Master Gardener, plant propagator or practioner of Yoga in the Garden, then this event is for you! How we garden; when we garden; where we garden; and who we are as gardeners will be defined so that our succeeding generations will have a desire to get their hands dirty and investigate our planet's gardens.
