June 25, 2016 –It’s the return of the hottest violet event in Texas!
11th Annual Summer FAVSD Workshop. At the First Presbyterian Church – inside of Erwin Hall. Address is: 1114 W. University Drive, Denton, TX 76201. Event hours are from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Doors open at 9 a.m for club members, event support staff, seminar speakers, and guests who are driving to the event from out of town.
*** Important note. The sales area will be closed to all foot traffic until officially opened by the event chairperson at 10:30 a.m. No early bird shopping like in past years. Additional time is needed by staff since we will have lots and lots of plants to unload, unpack, label, sort out, and place in their sections. We’re expecting record breaking sales again this year and I have been informed of many, many plants coming from the recent A.V.S.A. Convention in Albuquerque, New Mexico – including plants recently released and some not even listed in catalogs or updated on websites of yet. Are you excited? I am.
sale of supplies and hundreds of plants – sales area opens at 10:30 a.m.
luncheon – starts at 11:15 a.m.
workshops delivered by top regional growers – from 12:15 to 2:30 p.m
