The SC Midlands Master Gardener Association Gardening Symposium has been a fixture in the spring for 22 years. This year it will be held in the fall when gardeners are not quite so busy.

Leading off the day will be Doug Tallamy, chair of the Entomology and Wildlife Ecology Department at the University of Delaware followed by Laurie Aker, Community Relations Manager for Earth Fare, then Matt Nichols, an accomplished grafter of maple trees and co-owner of Nichols Nursery and will speak. Next along is local Master Gardener Sharon Thompson, a no-spray advocate, garden writer, and teacher of future Master Gardeners. The day winds down with the featured speaker, Allan Armitage, Professor Emeritus of Horticulture at the University of Georgia.

Enjoy a buffet lunch with breaks between speakers to give you ample time to peruse the demonstrations, book and vendor sales.

Pre-registration is required. Tickets are $75 a person for non-SC Midlands Master Gardener members. You can purchase them at: or by mail: Symposium Registration, 111 Park Court, Lexington, South Carolina 29072.
