In 2014, Green Our Planet began organizing an annual school garden conference in Las Vegas, Nevada. It’s purpose is so that educators can share their knowledge (pollinate each other!) of best practices relating to their outdoor garden or indoor hydroponics STEM programs. The following are some of the many talks and seminars held since then, including keynote speakers from across the U.S. and Canada.
