Each year we attend the Minnesota Green Expo held during the first full week of January up at the Minneapolis Convention Center. This is a time when we attend educational workshops, network with others in the green industry, visit vendors, firm up orders for the upcoming year and check out new equipment!
The educational seminars this year included such things as chain saw safety, planting techniques, many on business management, plant diseases, and many more. We currently have 5 employees who have earned the designation of Certified Nursery and Landscape Professional and there are others who are testing yet in January or are studying for an exam later in the year. The time and dedication to earn the designation attests to the great crew we have and it also extends to the customer service that we are able to provide.
Attending this year were Leif and Deb Knecht, Jim Westlund, Bernie Emery, Ben Danielson, Luis Olave, Amy Voight and Matt Wheeler.
