Southern Garden Symposium October 19th & 20th, 2018
October 19th & 20th in 2018 will see the return of the Southern Garden Symposium, a southern gardening convention which brings together the best tips, tricks, and gardeners from all across the southern states of America. Proceeds from the Symposium will again be going to numerous projects including: Historic Ferdinand St. in St. Francisville, Rosedown, and Audubon State Historic Sites. This kind of funding will carry southern gardening into the future as much as changing conditions can control what you do with your southern Garden. Changing how you see what southern gardening is can create a better environment for your southern gardens to grow.

The Southern Gardens Symposium is designed to pass along knowledge to those who require it to further their goal of planting crops, flowers, and cover plants during the hot, summer months of the Deep South. Now, 30-years later, the Southern Garden Symposium has become an annual tradition for gardeners from across the southern US. With lectures and workshops, the gathering will enlighten many with new tips and tricks on gardening in the south. The events are presented with southern style and class and include fresh foods from southern gardens as well as recipes of all kinds for attendees to try for themselves. This event will take the best knowledge from the highest level of gardener and hand it down to the novice. Nowhere can this kind of collaboration be found when it comes to southern gardens and can be counted on for more than a good, southern time.
