Conifers, Cabernet & Camaraderie
The ACS Western Regional Meeting will be held this year in Sonoma County, CA Oct 18-20. We'll be visiting Quarryhill Botanical Gardens, where Bill McNamara, who has been part of QH from its beginnings and has been on all of the Asian seed collecting expeditions, will be our guide. We'll also visit Western Hills Garden, where Sean Hogan, the owner of Cistus Nursery in Oregon and family member of the new owners, will host us. The New York Times once called Western Hills 'the Tiffany of plants'. Other highlights include private gardens, wineries, microbreweries and the ever-popular live and silent auctions of rare and unusual conifers. The rate goes up on Sept 18, so now's the time to register.
