OFA Short Course is just five days away -- but did you know the folks at OFA are already planning another great conference that will take place in two months?
In September, the OFA Perennial and Retail Conference will convene in Grand Rapids, Mich.
A Who's Who of industry experts on growing and selling perennials will be on hand to help educate growers and retailers on all levels of perennial production and what it takes to sell them
Through seminars, a tour, hands-on workshops, and a trade show, this conference "offers an intimate educational and networking experience focused on perennials."
The dates for the conference are September 10 to 12, at the Amway Grand Hotel.
If you have an interest in perennials, this is the place to be. The conference website has additional details on the program and to register to attend.
If I don't see you in Columbus this weekend for Short Course, I hope to see you in Grand Rapids in September.
