Young Friends

The Young Friends is a group of professionals age 40 and younger, who support the Danforth Center mission to improve the human condition through plant science. This mission includes our efforts to enhance St. Louis as a world center for agtech, bioscience, and other industries that are defining the future of our region.

Young Friends enjoy:

  • Social and networking opportunities with other young professionals at the Danforth Center, including the annual Party with the Plants. 
  • Opportunities to meet and learn from local entrepreneurs and young scientists in the Danforth Center’s innovation community.
  • Ongoing events, such as the Conversations series, Seeds of Change, special holiday party, and more.
