'Tis the season for landscaping conferences and meetings. Before we get too busy with the physical work, the wintertime is a time to do some learning and meet others who are doing similar work, as well as seeing what new plants and products are out there.
The following is a listing of some of the conferences happening in the New England area over the next 3 months. There may be others, but these are the ones that have crossed my desk recently.
Natural Landscape Design: Meadows & Woods, Feb 16-18th, at Tower Hill Botanic Garden in Boylston, MA, is another Larry Weaner sponsored course. This is focused on the landscape design professional who wants to learn more about the natural design process and management of a naturalistic design, especially in the context of Meadows and/or Woods.
The ELA (Ecological Landscaping Association) conference is March 3, 2011. This one day conference is focused on using ecological methods in the landscape and is accessible to anyone interested in improving the ecological functioning of their landscape. In addition to a very good line up of speakers, there is a marketplace where you can see many new products and speak with the vendors. This conference is in Springfield, MA, so you can connect with people outside the Boston area. This was the very first landscaping conference I attended 6 years ago, and I have been there every year since.
