The New Now at Cultivate'16
Polaroids and pay phones. Snail mail and silent films. Cursive writing and cassette tapes. Some things just don't stick around. Horticulture isn't one of them. When the only thing we’re running short of these days is time, there’s something to be said for timelessness. And that’s what we’re in the business of.

The face of horticulture and the definition of “gardening” are vastly different than what they used to be. Consumers are redefining the relevance of plants and what it means to “go green.” They’re “biophiliacs” instead of gardeners. They’re urban Millennials and downsizing Baby Boomers. They’re hipsters, yupsters, independents, and renegades. And as technology, schedules, and lives get more complex, the importance of outdoor spaces seems to grow larger.

While we might have changed our game and shifted our strategies, our roots are grounded in what makes the industry strong - dedication, perspiration, ingenuity, creativity, and beauty.This is "The New Now": same values, different strategies.

Discover your role in the New Now at Cultivate'16.
