Ontario Area Meeting July 20


Innovation: Making it Work
Wednesday, July 20, 2016 at Landscape Ontario in Milton, Ontario

In this industry, nurseries strive to be innovative to separate themselves from the competition. However what happens once the new equipment is on the property or when that new building is built? How do we face the inevitable challenges that go along with implementing new technology and new ideas?

Come join us Wednesday July 20, 2016 to discuss how to make innovations work and how to grow to success.

Seminars will take place in the morning at Landscape Ontario at 856 Fifth Line South in Milton, ON. Expect to hear from leaders in the industry on their challenges with both introducing innovations into the workplace as well as the continual challenges they face as they put them into action. Enjoy lunch at Landscape Ontario and take a walk through their trial gardens.

After lunch, we will tour Sheridan Nurseries’ two production sites and see how implementing their new potting line has been challenging and successful. Finally, follow up with a visit to Gro-Bark’s new mix facility which doubles the speed of production and creates a more consistent product. You can carpool or bring your own vehicle on the tours. It’s an action filled day that is sure to be a great learning experience for everyone.
