Save the Dates!
Plans are underway by Vancouver Master Gardeners for “Spring Back 2021”, two half-days of gardening-focused seminars featuring both renowned international and regional Pacific Northwest speakers. This year’s theme: Resilience. By the end of the week-end you will have heard from expert horticulturalists and know how to plant edibles in your ornamental garden and employ small space container gardening techniques, understand and be able to incorporate some of the latest trends in natural floral landscapes into your home garden, and be able to identify plants that triumph over extreme conditions while allowing you to adopt climate-change tactics.
Plan now to attend this virtual gardening palooza from the comfort of your home.
Mark your calendar and watch for poster details with confirmed speakers soon!
