Have a Field Day!

The annual Green Industry Professional Field Day and Trade Show is this Thursday (7/15/10). I have attended before as an observer. "Field Day" always conjures up memories for me of earning ribbons for jump roping and long-distance running. I also recall earning ribbons in "throwing for distance," which is a laugh -- the competition must've been sparse. This Field Day is a bit different though, more like a big company picnic, but instead of just one firm, it is open to all the landscape contractors and design installation firms in the DC-area.

This time Washington Gardener Magazine will have a tent space for the first time there this year. Come join us in the shade to chill out for a bit. The event includes hands-on, outdoor demonstrations presented at the beautiful campus of American University in Washington, DC. This campus, our Daytrip feature in our recent Spring issue, is an official arboretum, with a vast array of plantings. Bring a camera for the walking tour.

Demonstration Topics, arranged in four tracts, range from athletic turf subjects to grounds maintenance to aerial rescue in the mature trees of the Quadrangle. See new plant introductions and participate in landscape design discussions. One tract is presented in Spanish for the continuing education of the diversified workforce. Please consult the brochure for the complete listing and details.
