Vendor Relations: How to Work Best with Your Wholesaler
with Marie McConnell
Please bring an appetizer or a sweet to share
Marie McConnell will speak about optimizing the relationship between garden and landscape professionals. She has asked if there is any topic we'd like to cover that is of particular interest to our group. Please let Hillary know if you have particular questions, as Marie is customizing her talk to our interests. She will be showing us plants that Lake County Nursery is growing as part of the talk.
