One of the most innovative things about botanic gardens remains the incredible diversity of plants in one place. In addition to being centers for horticultural education, botanic gardens can use their living collections—often consisting of thousands of plants—to inform research and conservation.

Our guest today is Dr. Ari Novy, President & CEO at San Diego Botanic Garden, previously Chief Scientist at Leichtag Foundation, and former Executive Director of the U.S. Botanic Garden in Washington, DC 

Learn more about the San Diego Botanic Garden, as well as the Pollinator Project collaboration between SDBC and University of California Cooperative Extension. See also the Breadfruit Institute at the National Tropical Botanical Garden.
