WORLD ENVIRONMENT DAY
GreenThumb is partnering with the United Nations Environment Programme to celebrate World Environment Day on June 5, 2020 and the entire first week of June. This year's theme is Biodiversity. There is no better time than the present to focus on the importance of protecting habitats that support biological diversity, and the important role that community gardens play in that effort.

We are hosting these virtual workshops for World Environment Day.
