Master Gardener Conference

Yavapai, Coconino, Gila and Apache County Master Gardeners share the Arizona Highlands Master Gardener Conference.  Each year one county takes on the project.  This year the event is hosted by the Coconino County Master Gardeners in Flagstaff, Arizona.  The conference is open to everyone, not just Master Gardeners and is a terrific place to get gardening information specific to the area.  The conference has excellent speakers, garden tours and vendors and you will meet new gardeners.  We're a fun group!  Use the link below to find out more information.  Hope to see you there.
