  • Seven workshops will build expertise and provide tools for your organization and communities. Workshop themes range from “Indigenous Activism,” to “Corporate Sustainability,” to “Calculating Your Ecological Footprint.”
  • Garden Conversations (aka speed dating) will foster connections and create a foundation for exchange, collaboration, and after-conference follow-up.
