Since 2011, innovative thinkers from across the industry have met each year to generate solutions to the issues we all face and come up with ways to re-energize the green industry as part of the GROW program, a cross-segment initiative geared toward putting the green industry back on a path of long term, sustainable growth. This year, Greenhouse Grower shared several innovative ideas, actionable advice, and insights from industry insiders centered around the program’s five pillars: Drive Consumer Success, Demand Quality, Sharpen Business Management, Cultivate New Customers, and Invest In the Industry. Check out the slideshow above for a recap of the highlights from 2017, including links to full stories.
