Conference registration

Celebrate with us!

We expect this conference to sell out as this is the culminating event of our 50th anniversary!

Join us for four fun days of gardening inspiration and education. Learn from the experts, connect, and celebrate with friends, and go home inspired by innovative ideas and knowledge.

Enjoy local tours to kick off the Conference on Wednesday, September 27. Thursday starts off with a free walking tour, and then the Conference officially opens at 1:00 pm with a general session featuring David Gibby, co-founder of the Extension Master Gardener Program 50 years ago, followed by afternoon classes.
