Hold the date for a NARGS virtual conference by Zoom on June 26 and 27, 2020
Yes, we have all been pent up in our gardens for weeks now. Seedlings are sprouting. Orders from nurseries are arriving. But we are missing the inspiration from visiting other gardens. Oh yes, and hiking in the field. We here at NARGS have been busy though, preparing for our first virtual international rock garden symposium for you. It is so exciting! We have gathered first class speakers and gardens to give you ideas for plants and gardens at our live conference: TAPROOT 2020. This will be the first virtual international rock garden symposium. (See the link below.)
Our lineup includes talks and tours by rock-star plants persons: Nick Courtens (Betty Ford Alpine Gardens), Anne Spiegel (Millstream Award Garden), Tony Avent & Jeremy Schmidt (Juniper Level Botanic Garden), Mariel Tribby (Missouri Botanical Garden), Todd Boland (MUN Botanical Garden), and David Sellars (Millstream Award Garden). There is even a live workshop on Daphne cuttings by the master Don LaFond. We will end the conference with a look at the AGM in Durango 2021.
True, we are very sorry to have missed you all at our annual meeting in Ithaca with all its fantastic gorges. Another time perhaps. But consider saving the date for this virtual conference on June 26-27, 2020! Registration details will follow soon. NARGS members $50, non-members $90.
