“DON’T FIGHT MOTHER NATURE” IS THEME OF GARDENERS’ CONFERENCE
Sustainability, in simple terms is “don’t fight Mother Nature---work with her,” and it is the banner theme of the New Mexico State Master Gardener Conference to be held in Albuquerque, Aug. 31 to Sept. 2. It will be held at the Marriott Pyramid Hotel. Cost is $150, and registration is online at http://nmmgcon2018.org/
Topics will include edible landscapes, waterwise growing for home gardeners, four-season gardening for pollinators, green roofs, sustainability lessons learned from ancient pueblos, composting and even learning how to develop your own vegetable, herb and flower varieties.
Speakers include well-recognized experts such as author Judith Phillips, Landscape Architect Baker Morrow, sustainability consultant Jeff Goebel and others.
“We have designed this conference in the hopes of providing our attendees with new tools for their gardening toolkit, information on the latest sustainability trends and issues and some hands-on workshops to sharpen skills,” said conference co-chair Sam Thompson. “If you have a serious interest in southwest gardening, this is the place to be.” “
“We will also have local garden tours and social events such as a welcome reception and dinner on Saturday, so people can share information and interact,” said co-chair Charlene Spiegel.
Full details on the workshops, tours, speakers and sessions are on the website.
