G3 was founded in 2008 by seven experienced landscape industry professionals who had been working together on the sustainability-oriented Green Gardens Tour (2004 – 2008).
Together the Founding Members secured education and design contracts with water agencies and cities, and developed the underlying concepts embodied in the G3 Watershed Wise (formerly “Attainable Sustainable”) curriculum. Each of the Founding Members continues to support the sustainable principles of G3 through their private practices.
Although six of the Founding Members are no longer active in the day-to-day management of the organization, they remain valuable allies in the professional landscape community.
