Engaging Our Grounds

The ISGA was founded in September 2011, following a large, public, international school grounds conference entitled Engaging Our Grounds.


The conference was held in Berkeley, San Francisco, and Sonoma County, California, USA. It was directed by ISGA co-founder, Sharon Danks of Green Schoolyards America, and co-hosted by Bay Tree Design, inc., New Village Press, and the San Francisco Green Schoolyard Alliance (now called Education Outside). 

The images above highlight the conference workshops, events, visits and the post-conference retreat for ISGA Leadership Council members.
