2018 Symposium



“Inspiration for Next Year’s Garden”

2018 Massachusetts Gardening Symposium

Saturday, September 29, 2018, 8:30 AM – 3:30 PM

Westford Academy, Westford, MA

Each winter when the MMGA Symposium Committee meets to come up with a “wish list” for our next event, we start with feedback from previous participants. (If you attended in 2017, thank you for your thoughtful suggestions!) In keeping with our theme, “Inspiration for Next Year’s Garden,” we prioritize speakers whose topics not only challenge and elevate our thinking as gardeners, but also offer advice that is both practical and realistic. We hope 2018’s inspiration become your 2019 garden reality. Enjoy!
