Master Gardener Foundation of Yakima County
SCROLL DOWN FOR DETAILS!
The 2017 Advanced Education Conference in Yakima promises to be a SPECIAL ONE! In addition to a premier slate of educators and pre-conference tours, we are going to have a roaring good time!
Our theme: "Can You Dig It?" comes from the hit record from the Hippie Era of the 1960's called "Grazing In The Grass" by The Friends of Distinction.
Our welcome video shows you how to do the Can-You-Dig-It dance. We hope you'll catch the mood, find some bell bottoms, head bands, and tie-dye to join us in the fun!
(There will be prizes for costumes!)
We'll save you money, too! Parking and WiFi are free! And your room includes breakfast.
We are only a couple hours and a beautiful drive from most of the state;
we'll have lots of sunshine and fun - - and excellent training!
