Green Our Planet is proud to present the 4th Annual School Garden Conference, in partnership with the Clark County School District, Nevada Department of Agriculture, and Switch.

Educators, administrators, and the public are welcome to join us and learn about the rapidly growing school garden movement in Las Vegas. Teaching in an outdoor classroom is an innovative way for teachers to improve STEAM and nutrition education as well as influence students to conserve and protect the planet.

Please join us as more than 50 teachers, principals, students, keynote speakers, and celebrity chefs will share their accomplishments that have helped to expand Las Vegas school gardens over the past year.
