Katy Moss Warner will give the keynote presentation at the 2012 Northeast Greenhouse Conference and Expo.

The Northeast Greenhouse Conference and Expo will meet Nov. 7 and 8, in Worcester, Mass.

Warner will share her experience bringing color to the forefront in the gardens of Walt Disney World in Florida. Where did it start? How did it happen? What is the outcome? She will offer insight on the importance of color in municipal landscapes from her travels judging cities with America in Bloom. Can we really enhance the quality of life in our communities with colorful beautiful landscapes? Why are hanging baskets now so beloved in many of our towns and cities? She will challenge us that the green industry will do well to think and grow in technicolor.

Katy Moss Warner is president emeritus of the American Horticultural Society, a national, non-profit, member-based organization with a bold vision of “making America a nation of gardeners, a land of gardens.”

From 1976 to 2000, she was Director of Disney’s Horticulture and Environmental Initiatives at the Walt Disney World Resort. With a team of nearly 700, she was responsible for the landscapes of four theme parks, 15 resort properties and more than 70 miles of roads on the 30,000-acre property, ensuring that Disney’s horticultural traditions of beautiful gardens and environmental responsibility were sustained.

The Northeast Greenhouse Conference & Expo is sponsored by the Extension programs of the six New England State Universities, New York State and New England Floriculture Inc.
