Welcome to the ninth Turning a New Leaf sustainable landscaping conference. In a time that has felt anything but normal we dedicate the 2021 conference to "Planting a New Normal" , with the goal of highlighting collaborations that normalize sustainable practices and ensure diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice.

We believe that landscape professionals have a unique opportunity to effect positive change in the Chesapeake Bay region- a task best achieved when we work together. Join us as we work together to create a healthier, and more equitable, watershed.
