DRI GreenPower is excited to partner with Create a Change Now, Green Our Planet, Springs Preserve, and Three Square to bring you this unique day of learning.  The training begins at Springs Preserve with an opening keynote panel of experts discussing the connection between science, gardening, and health.  The morning will continue with rotating workshops where we explore each of these topics with hands-on engagement. Participants then have a choice of 3 field experiences including a bus trip to the DRI Soils Lab in Boulder City, A Farmers Market Healthy Scavenger Hunt in Summerlin, and Garden Learning at Springs Preserve.   Following these field experiences, busses will bring all participants to Three Square where we will sum up our learning with interactive food stations and a closing social.  Busses will transport everyone back to Springs Preserve to retrieve their cars at the end of the day.
