On Thursday, August 3rd, 2023, to advocate for the industry, Plantpeddler hosted an inaugural event to support and inspire our next generation of Horticulturalist.
Titled “Educate the Educators: Ag Educator Greenhouse Workshop Day” this was a day of interactive learning for Ag Instructors, who have or are considering a greenhouse at their school. Instructors from almost sixty schools, in Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin attended the learning event. The teachers were able to receive continuing education hours for the day. Along with the team at Plantpeddler, many Industry representatives offered their time and talents to present workshops on greenhouse production, curriculum, and fundraising. In addition to industry reps, keynoting this event was Iowa Secretary of Agriculture, Mike Naig.
