The event will bring together speakers who are deeply involved in making our populated environments better places for both people and plants. Keynote speaker Joe Lamp'l, creator and host of the national public television series Growing a Greener World, will share with attendees some of his favorite urban gardening heroes from past shows and will inspire listeners with innovative ideas that urban gardening can bring to communities. Additional speakers will include Thom Duncan of Charlotte's Friendship Gardens, Tradd Cotter of Mushroom Mountain and the team of Robin Moore and Mary Archer of the Natural Learning Initiative at North Carolina State University.
