The first talk will start at 11:00 a.m. and the second will be given after a one-hour lunch break at 1:15 p.m. In addition to the two talks, there will be a plant sale featuring choice plants offered by several vendors and a book sale featuring titles from the collections of the late Larry Thomas and Tom Stuart.  

Attendees will receive free admission and parking when they mention the rock garden society meeting to the attendant at the entrance gate. Attendees are encouraged to bring a lunch. There is a snack bar on the grounds, but service can be slow. Please mark the date on your calendars for a fun and informative day with fellow rock gardeners.
