2024 Regional Conferences

Registration is now open to members and non-members.

The ASCFG will host seven Regional Conferences throughout North America during 2024. The purpose of these two day regional conferences is to celebrate and highlight local excellence and expertise, and to connect ASCFG members with other growers in their regional community. While each gathering will vary in content and format, and will be informed by close collaboration with each ASCFG Regional Director, all events will include a farm tour, educational speaker sessions, and plenty of time to make connections.

Members are invited to attend any Regional Conference they wish to,
and will not be limited to their region.

Northeast and Mid-Atlantic

July 22-23

The ASCFG Northeast and Mid-Atlantic Regional Directors have combined forces to host a joint Regional Conference, which will take place in East Windsor, New Jersey. This event will include a tour at Moonshot Farm and  Kube-Pak. The second day will feature presentations on cut flower topics and plenty of time to network with fellow cut flower farmers.

Only five spots remain for the sessions on July 23! The tour day has filled.

Registration closes when maximum capacity has been reached or by June 30, whichever comes first.
