Calling all Master Gardeners! 2012 Upper Midwest Regional Master Gardener Conference



July 19-21, 2012

Every two years, the Upper Midwest Regional Master Gardener Conference is hosted by WI, IL, IA, or MN. In 2012, it's our turn here in Minnesota, and we are excited and proud to be hosting the conference for Extension Master Gardener volunteers at the world-renowned Minnesota Landscape Arboretum.

This conference is for Extension Master Gardeners and their guests only.

The conference will also feature a vendor fair, a silent auction with proceeds going toward the Jr. Master Gardener program in Minnesota, book signings, Minnesota Wine Opening Reception and a Minnesota Buffet Banquet featuring speaker Dr. Ed Schneider, Arboretum director.

The class sessions are diverse and exciting and focused around research in the Midwest! Some are classroom-based, some hands-on, some a little of both. Registration is now open. We hope all Upper Midwest Extension Master Gardeners will join us!

Registration is closed

I just registered for the conference, but unforturnately the 2 classes I was most interested in had already filled up. Do you have a wait list or standby list in case someone cancels? The two classes I wanted were the the photography classes on Thursday, 1.F and 2.F.

Thank you.

Hi Cathy:
Yes, the photo classes filled up quickly. However, we do not have a wait list for the conference break out sessions as we don't have the capacity to manage this kind of wait list.
