"I am thrilled to empower individuals to reach new heights in their gardening journey," says Joy. "This festival allows us to share our expertise and advice and puts education at the forefront, giving new gardeners the confidence and tools they need to succeed."

In 2022 Great Grow Along attracted almost 30k viewers and hopes to triple attendance in 2023. They will do this in grateful partnership with corporate and non-profit partners such as Park Seed, Thriving Design, Cool Springs Press, Stark Brothers, First Editions Trees & Shrubs, Proven Winners, Southern Living® Plant Collection, Garden for Wildlife, American Public Garden Association, Ecological Landscape Alliance, and more.
