ORG&HPS members are invited to a regional spring gala of Great Lakes Chapter of NARGS,  May 17-19 2019. Informal get-together on Fri evening. Vojtech Holubec is speaking on Sat about rock garden plants for Michigan's climate (dinner included). On Sat and Sun, there will be at least 7 open gardens and the chapter's spring plant sale. Esther Benedict (Indiana) will be selling rock plants; Andy Duvall will have his nursery-garden open. Some rooms have been set aside at $99 a night at Weber's Inn in Ann Arbor. Our hosts need to ensure their hotel arrangements will accommodate everyone, so please chair [at] onrockgarden [dot] com (contact Arie) ASAP if you are thinking of attending. He will also share more details once they are confirmed.
