25 Years - Four Celebrations!October 7-8
The ASCFG will be 25 years old in 2013. Help us celebrate together by
attending any - or all - of our meetings! We're making them a little
shorter, so you don't have to spend so much time away from your farm.
We're making them a little different from each other, so each will be a
uniquely useful education and networking experience for all growers.
We're making them ALL valuable, and fun.
“From Seed to Sale”
OSU Secrest Arboretum and OARDC
It’s all about the plants! Growers will explain their production and marketing systems for a wide variety of cut flower crops.
“The ASCFG Growers’ Business School ”
The traditional ASCFG Growers' School is back, along with an advanced track which focuses on running your business effectively.
Check out the presentation links for these past meetings!
“On the Farm”
Texas Specialty Cut Flowers
Frank and Pamela Arnosky welcome the ASCFG back to their Hill Country Farm for tours and demonstrations.
About 100 happy attendees gathered at the Arnosky Family Farm for a day of farming stories - spiders and snakes included - networking, and fabulous food. If you missed it, check out the Arnoskys' presentation below. It won't be as fun without the personal narration,but you'll get a good idea of the scope of their farm and how they grow. We are also happy to share Dr. Mengmeng Gu's valuable talk on woody cut flower production for the South.
Thanks to everyone who attended, and made the first meeting of 2013 such a success!
