Saturday, April 16
BGC President Nancy Del Presto and I spent some time (and money) at the Marketplace at the symposium this morning, and had a wonderful time! We met up with several of our BGC speakers from this year's programs--Jim Edson of Bartlett Tree Experts, Katie Werner of Phipps Conservatory and Botanic Gardens, and Kathryn MacGregor of Sylvania Natives--plus one of our colleagues from neighboring Churchill Garden Club. We also found some great new sources for plants, including DJ's Grenhouse from Mercer County, PA. I plan to register for the symposium itself next spring. (This year was just too nutty!) I'll post more deets later, but I wanted to mention it now while it was fresh in my mind. Highly recommended!
