Next week Green House adopters from around the nation will gather in Birmingham, Ala., Sept. 7-9 for the Fourth Annual Green House Meeting and Celebration.
The annual meeting is an exclusive time for Green House Project adopters to share, learn and celebrate their achievements! This year we’re also excited to invite our supporters to join the conversation taking place in Birmingham via social media.
