Executive Director, GardenComm

The Sustainability Summit is a 3-day virtual summit presenting sustainability leaders in the green industry. It looks at issues that affect everyone, whether you’re an industry professional or an individual consumer. It’s a collective of industry and business professionals who do amazing work, yet much of it goes unnoticed or overlooked, as much of the industry operates in silos.

What effects our gardens, effects our trees, effects our landscape, and effects our farms? It’s all connected. Consumers alike are concerned about climate change which can affect their choices, from the plants they buy for their gardens to having more sustainable landscapes, and seek to work at companies that align with their ideals. 

In this webinar, Garden Comm Executive Director Chris Sabbarese reviews the nine speakers at the event and how attendees can best utilize the information they receive.
