NDSHS 2012 website is up

This year the North Dakota State Horticulture Society has a webpage for their annual conference – we still can’t accept online registration, but at least we can post conference info and the brochure for people to print out and mail in!

The 89th annual conference will be in Bismarck, at the spanking-new Career Academy building at BSC. I always love these conferences – it rotates throughout the state every year, so attendees get an unparalled chance to tour new and interesting gardens from all over the state. I’ve been waiting a long time for it to come to Bismarck! I still fondly remember Minot and Jamestown, and the amazing kolomikta kiwis and mulberries in a Jamestown tour.

 I will be giving two talks this year – Resilient Gardening and a focus on Edible Perennials including mushrooms; and if I can manage to get my garden revamp done in time, my yard will be in the open houses on Thursday night July 26th. Craig Stange is giving his famous rainbarrel talk; there’s a session on composting; and Renee Ewine has opened her lovely city yard with raised veggie beds in the front and a huge rain tank and compost setup in the back,  so permaculture considerations will make a good showing!

Check out the site, the pictures of past conferences and this year’s yards, and let me know if there’s more info you’d like to see. Hope to see you in Bismarck in July!
