For only the second time in its 45-year history, Smithsonian Gardens has come together to develop a plan to strategically guide it into the future. The five-year period of the 2017-2021 Strategic Plan will encompass a time of assessing and deepening Smithsonian Gardens’ approaches to its work. With a fresh perspective on its mission, its understanding of what it does well, and the environment in which it operates, Smithsonian Gardens will pursue a strategic direction that will produce a public garden with global impact, a museum with a broadly recognized mission, and an institution with the resources to meet its vision and strategic objectives.
