The Center for Plant Genomics Training and Education hosts summer genomics workshops designed to provide underrepresented high school and college students with the opportunity to conduct a unique question-based genomics experiment with real world applicability, and has also helped establish community gardens that serve to educate students, teachers, researchers and the public about plant genomics, Solanaceous crops, the importance of plant diversity and applications of genomics for breeding sustainable, environmentally friendly crops.

 Summer Genomics Workshop
The NSF Potato Genome Project established summer genomics workshops that aim to provide stimulating science and technology educational experiences outside of formal classroom environments.
 Community Gardens
The community gardens aim to foster student, teacher and public awareness of the importance of biodiversity and applications of plant genomics research.
