Our first statewide Master Gardener Conference
I just got home from the first day of our very first statewide conference. It started at 9:30 this morning, and goes through 4:00 tomorrow afternoon. I wasn't in on any of the planning (I work full time, so my involvement is unfortunately limited), but I've been very impressed so far. We've had great speakers and good food - what more could you ask for, lol? The speakers are mostly from Louisiana, Texas, and Mississippi. Some sessions are for everyone, and others are smaller groups where we had to sign up for the ones we wanted. A couple of them were geared for the master gardening program rather than individual gardeners (Fundraisng & Grant Writing and So, You've Been Invited to Talk About Gardening?). There was also a panel discussion on Louisiana Master Gardener Projects so ideas could be shared from around the state. The final session will be Chef John Folse speaking on the Plantation Potager - that should be great!
Have any of your states had conferences? If so, what were they like?
