The Saskatchewan Greenhouse Growers (SGGA) and the Saskatchewan Vegetable Growers Association (SVGA) will be having their annual conferences and combined trade show on Nov. 9 to 11.

There will be 34 hours of presentations led by 21 speakers. “They’ll be focusing on greenhouse production, field vegetable production, garden centre management, and greenhouse vegetable production,” notes Glen Sweetman, the province’s greenhouse and nursery specialist. “Delegates shouldn’t have a problem finding topics relevant to their operation.” The conference is held at TCU Place in Saskatoon.

Among presenters are Lloyd and Candy Traven from Peace Tree Farm and Rita Randolph from Randolph’s Greenhouses. “They will energize and light the creative fire in you about hanging baskets and planters,” says Sweetman.

An ever-expanding trade show provides numerous networking opportunities for delegates to meet directly with the companies that provide the products and services to the industry. In addition, delegates can take in one of three, four-hour, pre-conference workshops the Friday night of the conference. With lunches, a banquet ticket and nonstop coffee included in the registration fee, the cost to attend compares favourably with horticultural conferences in other regions, says Sweetman. • www.agr.gov.sk.ca/skgreenhouse/ association.asp
