June 2017 Meeting
The next TIEG meeting is Thursday, June 1, 2017.

Horticulture is a boon of nature which is refined by human skill as a science to obtain more and more benefits. It involves rigorous cropping expertise, including the improvement, production, distribution and use of vegetables, fruits, woody landscape and greenhouse plants. Horticulture is now one of the fastest growing industries but “Has Technology Saved Horticulture?” Don’t be left in the potting soil dust! From the advent of the irrigation pipe to LEDs that will illuminate crops on their way to Mars, technology has been holding hands with horticulture for centuries. Come explore this world with well-known speaker, plantsman and garden personality Dan Heims of Terra Nova Nursery as he shares his views on the topics of tissue-culture, mechanization, and the movement of horticulture into the twenty-first century. Come to the June meeting and take a shuttle to see what the gardens of the future are going to look like.  

“Anyone who thinks gardening begins in the spring and ends in the fall is missing the best part of the whole year, for gardening begins in January with the dream.” - Josephine Nuese
