School education

Growing Green has partnered with the Arizona State University Photovoltaic laboratory to develop curriculum resources and workshops to be shared with 17 schools in Arizona. In addition these  resources are going to be shared with teachers from across the country at the 2024 Engineering Teacher Conference.Through this partnership Growing Green will present the work of community garden agrivoltaics projects at the Agrivoltaics World Conference and at the IEEE Photovoltaics Specialist Conference to increase awareness and adoption of this sustainable technology

students and the community about STEM

Community education

Growing Green has developed workshops at different community gardens to teach individuals, solar developers and farms about the benefits of agrivoltaivs to increase awareness and adoption. We have engaged farmers, solar developers and other community members to increase awareness and adoption. We have connected farms and several community organizations with solar developers to implement agrivoltaics.
