At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations) Related PostsTHESIS 2013 RMUTT – INNOVATION VERTICAL FARMING FOR FUTURE IN BANGKOK (HD)Bethesda Community Garden Club Selling and EducatingTalk Trillium – Healthy City Stewardship Centre and advancing health within our community2013 Can You Dig It Charlotte Community Garden TourPB 2013 – Community Gardens and Nutrition EducationJapanese Farmer Builds Epic Indoor Vegetable Factory
