Milton IPPS Area Meeting & Tour — July 20

at the Landscape Ontario Office (#7856 Fifth Line South, Milton)

Innovation: Making it Work

You are invited to attend an engaging educational program and enjoy tours of an Ontario nursery and a local mixing facility. Our morning seminars highlight leaders in the industry and their challenges with both introducing innovations into the workplace as well as the continual challenges they face as they put them into action. Enjoy lunch at Landscape Ontario and take a walk through their trial gardens. Then tour Sheridan Nurseries’ two production sites and see how implementing their new potting line has been challenging and successful. Finally, follow up with a visit to Gro-Bark’s new mix facility which doubles the speed of production and creates a more consistent product. It’s an action filled day that is sure to be a great learning experience for everyone.
