2014 Garden Expectations WIMGA Conference

Garden Expectations Wisconsin State Conference

Join us at the beautiful Radisson Paper Valley Hotel and Conference Center in downtown Appleton on March 28 and 29, 2014 for the Garden Expectations Annual WIMGA Conference.  Each year, the Outagamie County Masters Gardener Association hosts a Garden Expectations conference and, in 2014, will combine the event with the annual Wisconsin Master Gardeners conference.  The 2-day event will be jam-packed with wonderful speakers on a wide variety of topics, and you'll have the opportunity to visit with vendors introducing some interesting and exciting products. 
While this event is organized by the Wisconsin Master Gardeners for its members, it is open to the public!

Dan Heim, Terra Nova Nurseries, will be the keynote speaker on both Friday night and Saturday morning.  His presentations will be "Right Plant-Right Place" on Friday night, and "Perennials for Containers" on Saturday morning.

Saturday break-out sessions:
  • Mushroom Hunting                                       
  • Growing and Using Herbs
  • Permaculture
  • Bees and Beekeeping                                
  • Native Plants
  • Innovations in Indoor Gardening
  • Trash to Treasure Garden Accents
  • Hostas
Following the break-out sessions will be an hour-long panel of experts where you can get your gardening questions answered!
Registration fees will include all sessions and speakers, access to the myriad of vendors that will be in attendance, refreshments at Friday night's social hour (cash bar), continental breakfast on Saturday morning, and lunch on Saturday.  All events will be held at the Radisson Paper Valley Hotel and Conference Center, and a block of rooms has been set aside for our use.  Registration fees will be:
  • Registration before February 1:  $65
  • Registration between February 1 and February 28:  $70
  • Registration after February 28:  $75
