Environmental Stewardship

We have set ambitious environmental stewardship goals that will challenge all of us to do things differently. We believe we can meet these goals with your help.

There will be three facets to our Environmental Stewardship initiative at IMGC 2023:

Education about environmentally responsible gardening practices. You will learn about sustainable practices you can use in your own program, community and home garden.

Operation of our conference in a sustainable manner. We are systematically examining every aspect of the conference looking for ways to make it environmentally friendly. From transportation and food to educational programs and giveaways, we want this conference to conserve natural resources, minimize waste of all types, and repurpose, recycle and compost whenever possible.

Action of our conference attendees in making sustainable choices. We hope you will accept the challenge and partner with us by choosing “greener” options.
