Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

We all have much to learn from one another. Well-developed networks and networking among our organizational peers strengthen the work we do and can drive collective action. During this session, we will define the power and purpose of well-defined networks, share examples of collective impact, and model effective networking strategies. Presenters will provide brief descriptions of the networks they have developed with an emphasis on the how and why of bringing people together. Participants will be encouraged to share their successes, challenges, and aspirations related to fostering networks and influencing collective action.

I have been supporting school garden-based education for the past 20+ years. I like discussing how to best institutionalize/sustain garden-based programs in districts and regions.
