During the morning session, attendees will hear from Ingham, a renowned leader in soil microbiology and research of the soil food web, the community of organisms living all or part of their loves in the soil.
After lunch, Crow, president of the Crow Family Foundation, will discuss Earth Day Texas 2015 (formerly Earth Day Dallas), how it is transforming the nation’s perception of Texas, and the state’s journey to sustainability.
The conference theme is “Clean Jobs, Clean Resources, Clean Environment and Quality of Life.” Breakout sessions will follow one of three tracks: Saving the People (Body & Soul), Saving the Planet, and Saving & Obtaining Money.
