Due to overwhelming demand for the thursday workshops – we just added two new session:
WORKSHOP 7: MEADOWS WORKSHOP
capacity 25, Runs all day- 8am-5pm (lunch provided)
During this all day workshop we will discuss the York County Sustainable Landscaping Model Ordinance, the MS4, nuisance ordinances and how they impact meadows. Soils and amendments, hydrology, seed versus plug planting methods, establishment, and maintenance of meadows will be covered. We will conclude with hands-on planting of an actual educational meadow. Participants are encouraged to have some background in Pennsylvania ordinances, and an understanding of grading and soil principles. Please come dressed for planting whatever the weather.
WORKSHOP 8: THE JOY OF PROPAGATION
Barry Glick, capacity 36, 1-5pm
Back by popular demand, Barry’s workshop was a sellout four years in a row in the mid 90’s. You will enjoy a down and dirty, hands-on learning experience from seed collection and sowing to tissue culture and everything in between. Everybody goes home with a tray of plants and other goodies.

NEW for 2014!
We NOW offer partial registrations. Although FM Mooberry, the conference founder, wanted the conference to be a native plants community for the 2 days during the conference. We have re-evaluated the conference mission and would like to be able to reach as many people as possible with our message. People are busy and budgets for education have been cut. We have now fully adapted to meet the needs of our attendees, especially the professionals and the home gardeners. Look for one and two day registrations or attend the entire conference. We will also have full and partial day workshops on the first day that are additional and optional. These are very exciting times for people working with native plants. We don’t want our conference mission to stand in the way of anyone learning more and aplying what the’ve learned in their field.
