2014 WR Annual Meeting
Hilton Garden Inn - Beaverton, Oregon
Join us in Portland and environs for ‘East Meets West’. This will be an opportunity to get up close and personal with Ryan Neil, the genius behind Bonsai Mirai (East) and Jan Redyk and his European Nursery (West). We’ll have in-depth visits to both locations, with demonstrations, conversations and ample opportunity to stroll these phenomenal gardens. Ryan is one of the most accomplished bonsai masters in the US and teaches his art to students all over the world. Jan founded European Nursery over 20 years ago and is known for rare grafts and plants from Europe. There will be opportunity to buy plants (shipping will be available) and lunch will be provided at EN by gourmet food truck Koi Fusion – truly a Portlandia experience!
Our agenda will be rounded out by visits to the ACS Reference Garden Hoyt Arboretum, where Curator (and long time ACS supporter) Martin Nicholson will guide us, and an optional visit to the Portland Japanese Garden, recently voted #1 by Sunset Magazine of all public gardens in the West. Of course we’ll have the ever-popular plant auction (with shipping opportunities for those coming from afar).
We’ll be staying at the Hilton Garden Inn in Beaverton, convenient to the Portland Airport, and we have blocked rooms with a group rate under the American Conifer Society name.
Mark your calendars and we’ll see you in Oregon in August!
