We know the needs of growers and arborists differ from the needs of retail garden center owners and managers. We recognize that parks & rec professionals and golf course superintendents don't need the education that business owners need to make their businesses profitable. But we also understand that landscape designers and contractors might have similar concerns about topics such as sustainable landscaping. This year's education sessions will focus on business management and practical applications for specific audiences.
