This virtual panel event has been rescheduled from the 2020 GreenThumb GrowTogether conference, and is now part of United Nations World Environment Day 2020.

Climate change is one of the most pressing issues of our time. Learn about the role that community gardens play in addressing climate change through biodiversity and sustainable gardening practices. Hear from community gardeners and local partners about ways that your community garden can introduce design principles, green infrastructure, native plants, and other strategies to enhance climate resiliency.
