The Saginaw Valley Nursery and Landscape Association (SVNLA) provides its members with educational meetings throughout the year. The Great Lakes Trade Expo (GLTE) in January provides three days of educational classes and our day-long Short Courses are always well attended. In March, the Garden Day Expo allows our members to show the consumer what services they offer as well as educational classes.
If you are in a "green" industry related business within the Saginaw Valley, or surrounding area, and aren't an SVNLA member, visit our Contacts page to join.
Be an integral part in helping grow our greener community!
