InVigorateU 2017There are some great green industry events coming up that you will find Spring Grove Nursery at!

Starting soon is this winter’s third annual InVigorateU 2017 hosted by the IGIA.  Once again, they have excellent educational & networking opportunities. Please join us this week Jan 16 & 17 in Bloomington/Normal, IL. There will be CEU’s available for both landscape architects & arborists. It’s not too late to sign up!

Specifically for Growers we have an excellent line up of education both days. Four grower sessions on Tuesday will feature topics of Government Policy, Pest & Disease, IL Dept of Ag, & a Plant Buyer’s Panel.

In addition, this year the entire day on Monday will feature plants. Monday will be kicked off with Dr. Doug Tallamy and Tuesday with Craig Regelbrugge from American Hort. It’s really worth a look & your time to come out for a day or two and make the most of your winter re-charge efforts! Here is a link to find out more about the event:
