Seeds of Joy
The Evolution of Your Home Garden
We have five speakers who will present wonderful ideas we can use in Western North
Carolina! Bookending the day, Linda Vater, popular YouTuber, will start us off with
gardening for your favorite season, and our very own Craig Mauney from the Mountain
Horticulture Crops Research and Extension Center will close us out with tips and tricks
for WNC wildlife and landscaping challenges. In between, our speakers will be Brannen
Basham of Spriggly’s Beescaping, podcaster Leslie Harris of Into the Garden with Leslie,
and Heather Andrews of Garden Thoughtfully. What an inspiring lineup!
The event will be held at Blue Ridge Community College in Flat Rock. With easy access
just off I-26, the facility offers a roomy conference center with excellent graphic displays
and sound, plus a central area where the vendors will be situated so you can easily see
everything they have to offer.
The symposium fee is $65, or $60 if you register before the early bird deadline.
We have a fabulous caterer who will provide a morning snack,
lunch, and an afternoon coffee break.
As always, there will be wonderful door prizes, great vendors, and plenty of free parking.
Attendance for the full day is valid for 5 hours of continuing education.
Details and information for online registration will be released in August.
