APGA’s 2024 Development & Membership Symposium

Comprehensive Inclusion in an Exclusive Space

January 10-12, 2024
Tucson, AZ

Nestled in Florida’s Southwest corner on the Gulf of Mexico, the Greater Naples area is an 89% white community with a median income of $125,306 and 6% of the population below the poverty line. Located downtown, Naples Botanical Garden consists of 170-acres of world-class gardens that welcomes over 260,000 visitors per year. So how does the Garden provide an inclusive green space for their entire community? In this session, you’ll learn how Naples Botanical Garden’s Membership Program “A Garden for All” welcomes their community—regardless of income. Join us for a case study on how the Garden, by leveraging community partnerships and strategic operations and technology, was able to achieve A Garden for All.
