MFGA Summer Meeting • Thursday, August 10, 2017

Our MFGA Summer Meeting will be held on Thursday, August 10, 2017 at the Massachusetts Horticultural society Elm Bank Reservation.

This year we will have a Trial Garden Tour again but add an educational program at Elm Bank Reservation. We’ll have a special presentation by Ellen Wells, Editor at Large, Grower Talks Magazine, on Garden retail trends. Then, we offer 1 pesticide credit for a program on “Integrating micro-organisms to supplement your IPM Program” by Dr. Debbie Palumbo-Sanders, Technical Specialist, BioWorks.

We will begin at Cavicchio Greenhouses, Sudbury, where Kerri Stafford, Head Grower, will walk us through their extensive trial garden. We will travel by car around the corner and visit J.P. Bartlett to see their new geranium introductions trials. We then drive to Wellesley and regroup at the Massachusetts Horticultural Society’s Elm Bank Reservation where we will view the MFGA trial gardens and AAS trials with David Fiske, Trials coordinator. Then lunch and finish the day with the two speakers mentioned above.
