Volunteers needed for the 34th Spring Garden Fair
Our annual fundraiser is in need of volunteers to fill several shifts on Saturday, May 5th and Sunday, May 7th. Please consider signing up for a shift, and if you have already committed to one shift, add another to make a full day of it! Remember that this is our biggest fundraiser for the year. Proceeds fund many chapter projects and events throughout the year.
We can’t do it without you!
Growing Gardeners G2 Conference – Thursday, July 12 to Saturday, July 14 2018 Linfield College, McMinnville Oregon.
This year’s OMGA’s G2 educational conference is being specifically planned to stimulate your passion for gardening in Oregon. Master Gardeners from across the state will be able to attend classes (most will earn you your required CEU’s for recertification), enjoy wonderful cuisine and share friendship and knowledge in an academic setting on the campus of Linfield College in McMinnville. Plan to attend and maybe invite a friend to come along to share the experience.
