Programs address issues related to professional growth, design exposure, national certification and business/legislative advocacy. Unique venues and fresh approaches are always sought, and networking is integral to every program.

Includes two lunches and transportation
Hotel, dinner, breakfast not included
Join us for a weekend of touring and learning (and having fun!) in private gardens and wholesale nurseries in Mount Vernon and Bellingham.
You have the option of a one- or two-day tour. On Friday we'll be in the Mount Vernon area where we’ll focus on wholesale nurseries with a few special private gardens sprinkled in, beginning at APLDWA Platinum Sponsor, Western Nursery Sales in Arlington, and including APLD member Everett Chu’s retail nursery, Azusa Farm and Gardens. Those continuing the tour for the second day will stay the night in Bellingham. Saturday's touring in Bellingham will focus on private gardens and will include a visit to the studio of Architectural Elements, a 2014 APLDWA Platinum Sponsor. Tours of private gardens will be led by the gardens’ designers and will feature the sites’ challenges, their clients’ goals, how their designs addressed these issues, and what lessons they learned in the process. APLD and WSNLA CEUs pending.

Friday: 9 am – 6 pm (departing Seattle at 8:15 am and the Eastside at 8:00 am)
