[As a side note, we were not able to publish full meal choices when we launched registration in October, because the Convention Center changes its menu, annually.  We had a general sense of what the options would be (i.e. chicken, beef, fish, vegan), but did not know the exact meal choices, until recently.]

Registration is Open!

We’re offering lots of choices for the 2017 International Master Gardener Conference:  44 concurrent session classes and 16 tours to choose from; extra events such as the opening reception and 3 movies in a film festival.  With this many choices, it can take some time to consider your choices and register.
