Proposals are welcome on topics previously listed as well as new topics.
Evaluation of Proposals
The program committee evaluates proposals on four criteria: overall quality, relevance to the theme, clarity of focus and practical applicability. Generally, the strongest sessions are those which draw on both personal experience and an understanding of the problems and experiences of other garden programs.
