Do you grow or sell horticultural products? Have you ever attended the Great Lakes fruit, vegetable, farm market and greenhouse expo in Grand Rapids? This expo has three days of seminars on a wide range of topics related to growing and marketing fruits, vegetables, herbs and ornamental plants. Hear what the latest developments are in managing spotted wing drospholia, or tips on using social media to promote your product or place. The topics are wide ranging and there is something for everyone.
Do you find looking for products for a new project frustrating? As part of the expo, there is a trade show with over 400 vendors selling equipment, packaging, seeds and more. I will be looking at irrigation products and solar panels for my next project.
Registration is reasonably priced. Check it out at glexpo.com. It runs Dec. 5-7, 2017.
