“New Frontiers” in horticulture and gardening — March 22-26, 2009 Las Vegas

The International Master Gardener Conference will be held in the bright light city of Las Vegas...But it won't be about the gambling or shows but rather about plant selection, proper soil management, water conservation and pest management in addition to sharing new knowledge about the "green technologies" for horticulture.  There are also many workshops and a variety of tours being planned including:   Hoover Dam, Grand Canyon, Ethyl M Cactus Garden and Living Machine, Red Rock Canyon, The Desert Rose Garden and so on.  Plan on attending in 2009.  For details go to their website at:  http://www.unce.unr.edu/imgc/
