Green-Collar Career Exploration and Networking Breakfast - Chicago


Dear Students, Educators, and All Event Registrants,

It is with deep disappointment that we announce the cancellation of our Green-Collar Career Exploration and Networking Breakfast, scheduled for March 21, 2020 at Navy Pier in Chicago, Illinois.

Today, we were informed by the organizers of the Chicago Flower & Garden Show that they had made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 show.  They cited the fact that Chicago health officials are encouraging people to avoid large groups at indoor events, and shared -  “We cannot ignore the advice of city leaders or the global health community. It would be irresponsible and dangerous. The risk to our most vulnerable populations is real.”  We understand and know what a difficult decision this was for them.  Our event is cancelled as well.

We truly appreciate your interest in learning about the incredible career opportunities available in the art, science, technology and business of plants.  We will find another opportunity to offer this event to students in the future – and will reach out to you to invite your participation again.

In the meantime, we hope you will find our career resources helpful:

  1. Green-Collar Career Exploration Tool:
  2. Where to Study (2- and 4- year programs in the US and Canada):
  3. Internships Search Tool:
  4. Scholarships Search Tool:

Thank you again.  We hope you have a wonderful spring season and a terrific #YearOfThePlant!
