Cultivate is one of the largest annual national horticulture industry conferences/trade shows in the US, hosted by AmericanHort in Columbus, OH. For over a decade, The Ohio Program (TOP), has exhibited at this conference and has represented CFAES. This year, TOP’s booth was placed together with the Agricultural Technical Institute (ATI) thus raising the profile of CFAES.
Annually, The Ohio Program arranges 5 days of special educational and social-cultural events towards the professional development of their international horticulture interns during Cultivate. Interns network with their peers and industry professionals, as a group and individually, attend educational sessions, and join various social-cultural events. Nine interns from four countries came to Columbus a few days before the event started, volunteering to help AmericanHort staff and members set up decorations.
