Event Details

A conference and expo on green design, business and ideas in the northern plains. 

Coming to Sioux Falls April 28-29, 2010.

Plain Green is where innovators and change-makers gather to learn and connect around green design, healthcare, education, business and ideas. Fantastic keynotes, in-depth workshops, community networking, how-to sessions and green exhibitors. 
All under one historic roof at the Washington Pavilion of Arts and Science in Downtown Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

The Plain Green Conference and Marketplace is two days of advancing sustainability on the Northern Plains. Connect, learn and take action with hundreds of other attendees and star-power keynotes, plus green exhibitors and two days of workshops and breakouts (conservation design planning, green healthcare, eco-affordable home building, green office makeovers, LEED, straw bale construction, EPA compliance, permaculture and much more).
