Symposium and Seminar Information

As one the Southeast’s top teaching gardens, the JCRA is a hot-spot for in-depth, educational gatherings which focus on current and compelling themes in horticulture.

We host several symposia each year

In June, we put on the Southeastern Plant Symposium in conjunction with Juniper Level Botanic Gardens. There is a registration fee for this symposium.

In February, we host the JC Raulston Arboretum Winter Symposium. There is a registration fee for this symposium.

In February and August each year, we host a free symposium for beginning gardeners called the Intro to Gardening in the South Symposium

Some of our symposia are held in conjunction with an online plant auction. For more information, contact
