About this event

Please Join Us June 3 - 6, 2021! As the American Rhododendron Society kicks off its annual convention & this year we are going virtual.

Due to the travel restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 American Rhododendron Society Convention will be offering all the presentations, garden tours and networking opportunities available online, to anyone who can access the internet!

Speakers include Ken Cox, famed Scottish Rhododendron breeder from Glendoick Nursery in Scotland; Joe Bruso, Rhododendron breeder from Massachusetts; and Todd Boland from Newfoundland’s Memorial University Botanical Garden. The Convention will launch with a lecture on “Introduction to Mi’kma’ki” by Gerald Gloade, a Mi’kmaw Naturalist and educator who will tell the stories of the first people that explain the natural history since the area was covered by ice.

Virtual Garden tours will include the Kentville Research Centre, Annapolis Valley Historic Gardens and Peggy’s Cove barrens. Networking opportunities will include the Breeder’s Roundtable where you can hear about the latest trends in Rhododendron breeding, the ARS Next Gen Project which will show how to involve the next generation in your local American Rhododendron Society club, as well as social events that feature the seafood, cider and wine from our local producers.

Full program details can be found at https://ars2021.org/

* Please note payment for international guests from outside of Canada and the US will need to use Paypal for payments under their prefered currency exchange.
