EVENTS

Cabin Fever!

Join us for the 9th Annual Cabin Fever Gardening Conference to be held on March 24, 2018.  This full day of gardening education won’t disappoint the committed gardener.  You’ll be inspired by the possibility of spring and enjoy the camaraderie of fellow gardeners.  Topics this year range from caring for roses and lavender to exploring the importance of soil biology and native pollinators, and each speaker in their own way will address the overall theme of ‘Building Environmental Stewardship’.
