I wanted to introduce you all to The National Association of Professional Women in Landscape. The organization, based in Orange County, CA, was started about a year and a half ago to increase professionalism, profitability and expertise for women in the landscape and green industries.

NAPWL intends to increase the number of women in landscape and green businesses in a number of ways: by establishing innovative and effective change in the practice of the industry’s culture; by building equitable partnerships, alliances and strategic bonds within various disciplines; and by promoting economic development within the landscape community.

The photograph above was taken by a fifteen year old nature lover and gardener. Hopefully, through the efforts of the National Association of Professional Women in Landscape her generation will have fewer obstacles to overcome.
