Ontario Area Meeting

26 July 2017 - 26 July 2017

In this industry, nurseries strive to manage their changing irrigation needs. However, how do we address the issues of overwatering and underwatering? How do we implement the information gained at water seminars into our regular watering practices?

Come join us on Wednesday July 26, 2017 to discuss successful irrigation practices.

Seminars will take place in the morning at the Warwick Community Centre at 7074 Egremont Rd, Watford, ON. Expect to hear from leaders in the industry on the implementation of the transpiration model and other water management practices. Enjoy lunch at Warwick Community Centre prepared by volunteers of the John Knox Christian School.

After lunch, we will tour Sipkens Nurseries and Garden Centre, specializing in perennials for the wholesale market. From there tour Roelands Plant Farms Inc and witness a state of the art vegetable propagation facility. Lastly, follow up with a visit to Hillen Nurseries Inc. and see how they manage watering practices on their 350 acres. It’s an action filled day that is sure to be a great learning experience for everyone.
