Rescheduled to February 23, 2019
Due to lower-than-usual sign-ups, we have decided to move the 5th Annual School Garden Conference to February 23, 2019 (we've never scheduled a conference for October before--and it turns out that teachers are pretty busy in October!). Wayne Roberts will still be speaking as our keynote and our agenda should stay roughly the same. Your ticket purchase will automatically transfer to the new date. If you are unable to attend on February 23, 2019 you may request a refund through Eventbrite.
