Circle These DatesBy Tim Hodson

If you are looking for solutions both in the greenhouse and at retail, then you should plan to be in Huntersville, N.C., on Nov.8.

That is when the OFA Grow & Sell for Profit Conference will be going on location to Metrolina Greenhouses ““ the largest single-site heated greenhouse in the United States with 162 acres under roof. Growers and retailers will take part in a tour of Metrolina Greenhouses, where they will see in action one of the most automated greenhouses in the country. In addition to a tour of Metrolina, growers and retailers will get practical classroom, demonstration, and workshop learning opportunities covering a range of production and retailing topics.

Growers will have an opportunity to attend learning labs in the morning, followed by the tour with demonstrations in the afternoon. Retailers will spend the morning touring Metrolina and seeing demonstrations, and will spend the afternoon in learning labs.

Huntersville is the place to be if you are looking to grow and sell for profit. Go to the conference registration site to learn more.

And be sure to check out this video or this article to learn more about Metrolina.
