There is a lot of confusion out there about what it means to be "green". If you have ever been confused about this or have questions, here's a great opportunity to expand your knowledge. As part of the NYIGF, there will be a series of seminars all centered around being eco-conscious and green. Here's one in particular that we find much needed and should be very helpful:
