Registration is now available for the upcoming Statewide Master Gardener Conference. The event will be hosted by the Master Gardeners of the Tanana Valley and held March 24, 2018 at Pike’s Waterfront Lodge. It is an all-day event featuring Keynote speaker Bob Bors from the University of Saskatchewan, who will be presenting about what is on the horizon for northern fruit development and how to tend our current crop of honey berries and cherries.
Les Brake, from Coyote Gardens in Willow, will present a dinner program on March 23 about his recent trip to Africa, and will also speak during the conference. The dinner program has an additional fee of $20 to cover the cost of dinner, but we hope you will come and bring your spouse as a fun and economical date night.
As in past years, lunch is included with registration and we will have lots of door prizes. This is sure to be a fun and inspirational event to get you prepared for the upcoming growing season. Register soon as we do expect to sell-out!
We are low-tech this year, so we can only accept registration by mail or in-person at the March 6th Master Gardener meeting. Registration forms and additional information can be found on our website at: https://fairbanksmastergardeners.wordpress.com/conference/
