Topics range from year-round gardening to kitchen design trends to mold eradication. Presentations are topic-specific and not meant to be a “commercial” for the presenter’s company – the purpose is to educate the public and in the eyes of the attendees you will hold a level of expertise above others in your field.
Calling all Landscapers! — LANDSCAPERS! Creat a garden display to inspire, encourage, and awe the public. Click this link to view the flyer for details. Space is very limited so please do not delay.
