The Northern Lights Master Gardeners Association is presenting its 23rd annual Spring Garden Conference on Saturday, March 24. The all-day conference will be held at the University of Wisconsin – Marinette Campus.
The Keynote Speaker is Megan Cain, a garden educator, writer and speaker, who will present “Design Inspiration for a Creative Vegetable Garden.” General sessions provide a variety of learning opportunities for the balance of the morning and afternoon. A number of hands-on workshops include various garden art projects. Early registration will ensure enrollment in preferred sessions.
The cost for the all-day session is $40 and includes morning refreshments, the educational sessions and homemade lunch. Workshops have an additional fee to cover materials. Pre-registration is required and no walk-in registrations will be accepted.
Between breaks attendees will have an opportunity to view educational displays, participate in a bucket raffle, or find special items at the sales and garden magazines/books tables. The “Ask a Master Gardener” booth will be staffed by master gardener volunteers – so attendees should be prepared with horticulture related questions.
