Registration for Southeast Region Conference is Now Open!

By Sandra Horn

Thanks to a lot of hard work by the leadership of our region and especially the conference chairs, Jeff and Jennifer Harvey, the 2015 Southeast Region Annual Meeting, Sept. 18-20 in Chattanooga, TN, is shaping up to be a truly exciting event for anyone interested in growing conifers in the South. Take a few minutes to read the conference brochure, and then send in your registration and book your hotel. Here's your chance to spend three days with like-minded people who won't think you're crazy for spending your last dime on a tiny spruce, who understand why a Southerner might buy a pine tree, and who know that a broom isn't necessarily something you use to sweep the floor. There will be gardens to view, plants to buy, friends to make. Here's a link to more information on the conference, and be sure to sign up for one of the volunteer opportunities. See you in Chattanooga!
