Webinar: Carton 2 Garden
Jan 11 @ 3:00 pm

Need additional inspiration for your Carton 2 Garden project application? Join us for a webinar on January 11, 2017 at 3 pm EST for ideas and examples from previous winners.

Evergreen Packaging and present their third annual national Carton 2 Garden Contest!  Open to public and private schools, contest winners will be selected based on their implementation of an innovative garden creation featuring creative and sustainable uses for repurposed milk and juice cartons.

Your school can get started by collecting at least 100 empty cartons from your home, community, or cafeteria. After gathering cartons, it’s time to design and construct purposeful garden items and structures using them. Look for inspiration at this webinar!

If this time does not work for you, a link to a recording will be posted. If you register for the webinar, you will receive a notification when the recording is available.
