Sign up now, and think Spring!

If you’re not yet signed up for the Spring Master Gardeners conference, it’s not too late. Maybe you haven’t heard about the plentiful and amazing door prizes we’ll be giving away at each coffee break! Maybe you haven’t noticed the warm air and bright skies, which makes some of us have the itch to plant seeds! (But don’t do that yet; it’s still too early in Fairbanks, Alaska.) You could spend the day cleaning the closets, or you could procrastinate that spring cleaning a little longer and join us at Pike’s Waterfront Lodge on Saturday, March 7th for a day of gardening wisdom. Check out the program on our conference page – there’s flowers, garlic, pests, herbs and more! Reserve your spot today!
