2016 Great Gardens Symposium a Huge Success

Symposium_Me_SpeakingLast month’s Great Gardens and Landscaping Symposium, hosted at The Woodstock Inn and Resort, was hailed the best yet by many returning attendees. The event sold out 2.5 months before it even started with 225 attendees from nine states. Joseph Tychonievich, Kim Eierman, Benjamin Pauly and myself all received high marks for energizing, engaging and inspiring presentations. (It was a gorgeous day which encouraged many attendees to enjoy lunch outside)
Symposium_Lunch_LawnThe Woodstock Inn received gold star reviews, and this premier symposium, hosted at a world-class resort, would not be possible without the supplemental financial support of its exceptional sponsors:The American Horticultural Society; Broken Arrow Nursery; Coast of Maine Organic Products for Healthy Plants; Corona Tools; Espoma Organic Products; Garden Design magazine; Gardener’s Supply Company; Neptune’s Harvest Organic Fertilizer; Plantskydd Animal Repellent; Proven Winners; The Garden Conservancy’s Open Days Program and White Flower Farm
