Come to Nova Scotia for the 2023 NARGS Conference and AGM: Rocks, Plants, Habitats.
The conference will take place from Thursday June 8 to Sunday June 11 at the Dalhousie University Agricultural Campus in Truro, Nova Scotia.

The Agricultural Campus has a highly acclaimed Rock Garden with acidic granite rock and new limestone crevice garden.
All breakfasts, receptions and banquets will be in the Riverside Room on campus and accommodation will be available both on campus and in local hotels.
The program will feature the very rich diversity of plant habitats in Nova Scotia from coastal barrens, gypsum deposits and the Acadian forest. Speakers will include an Introduction to Mi’kma’ki, the legends of Nova Scotia, Nova Scotia flora as well as national and international rock garden specialists, such as Julia Corden, Jiří Papoušek, Esther Wrightman and more.

This includes all meals (three breakfasts, two box lunches, three evening dinners), two days of bus tours and all the sessions. As you must be a NARGS member to register for the conference and AGM we have set the non-member registration fee at $660 Canadian which includes the cost for a one year NARGS membership.
