2019 International Master Gardener Conference

Penn’s Woods: Digging into our Roots is the theme for our 2019 conference. Recognizing the region’s rich history of horticulture for more than three centuries enables the conference to include a full array of lectures, demonstrations, tours and field study classes. Highlights will include practical methods for gardening successfully and sustainably, and “must-have” plants for gardeners. Additionally, numerous exemplary achievements by Master Gardeners from throughout the world will be acknowledged at the International Search for Excellence awards ceremony.
