2019-mg-logo.Your state MG planning committee has been working hard to make sure this year’s state conference in Hope, Arkansas is going to be outstanding. Registration has been open for two weeks today and we already have almost 250 people registered. Optional tours are filling up quickly, so if you want to sign up for one of these I would do so soon. The link to sign up is:https://www.uaex.edu/yard-garden/master-gardeners/mgonly/mg-conferences.aspx

 

This conference is for Master Gardeners and you must know the user name and password to the MG Only site to get in. 

Some of the tours you may be interested in include the Homesteading workshop on Monday, April 29.  You can learn about gardening with herbs, soap making, high tunnelsold washington may16 (10)

candle making, cheese making and more.  There are still a few spots left.  

If you can’t make the Homesteading Conference another optional workshop is papercrete from 3:30 – 4:45 p.m.  hypertufaPapercrete is a process where you can make containers or yard art with re-pulped paper fiber with Portland cement or clay and/or other soil added.  The process was first patented in 1928, it was revived during the 1980’s.  We have had an advanced training on this and it was quite popular.  You will get to create a container to take home with you.  

These are just two options of extra events for the conference.  We will share more information about the optional events for AFTER the conference on Wednesday, May 1 tomorrow.   Hope has plenty of learning opportunities, so sign up now!
