Green Industry Conference Update

Many thanks to the Green Industry Conference team on the tremendous success of its recent conference in Cincinnati. This was an impactful collaboration between agriculture and natural resources and 4-H youth development professionals. New to the conference this year was an educator track. Agriculture career tech programs from the Cincinnati Public Schools attended the conference. They learned about career pathways in horticulture, and teachers received professional development credit for attending. The Davey Resource group contributed scholarship dollars to cover the registration cost of all students. As a result, 80 students registered for the conference. Thanks also to our partners at the Cincinnati Zoo, University of Cincinnati, University of Kentucky Extension, and Purdue Extension. Some of the instrumental team members include Maria Gulley, Amy Coors, JT Benitez, Joe Boggs, Victoria Mullins, Gigi Neal, and Claire Linepensel.
