Greenhouse Seminar in Missouri

Hat tip to Inalienable Wrights who sent this to me. Thanks! I intend to go as ever since I began my greenhouse venture I think I have experienced every possible problem and haven’t been able to resolve all of them to my liking. It just doesn’t read the same articles I read!

Here’s the info…and short notice, too. 🙂
