The Master Gardener Foundation of Washington State, on behalf of its partners, Washington State University Extension and Master Gardener chapters from all across the state, has come to the difficult decision to reschedule the Advanced Education Conference of 2020. The unknown length and severity of the global Coronavirus pandemic and its impact on our lives and plans make it prudent for us to make this change.
We will be working over the coming weeks to find new dates in the fall of 2021 for the event. The planning team is excited about the quality of the design and programming that has come together for 2020, and we intend to replicate that as closely as possible. Our hope is that the same excellent instructors and panelists will join us again. Once specific plans are confirmed, we will announce the details.
If you have made plans and/or reservations for lodging for the 2020 conference, now is a good time to cancel them. If you booked accommodations through our website, automatic refunds will be forthcoming. If you booked directly with Fort Worden, or other Port Townsend area lodging, contact them directly.
Thank you for your support and patience as we readjust. We dedicate ourselves to producing a great rescheduled conference in 2021!
STAY TUNED FOR DETAILS COMING LATE SPRING 2020.
