The Texas 2017 MG Conference and home
May 1, 2017
We had a very enjoyable time at the 2017 Texas State MG Conference aboard a cruise ship out of Galveston. There were over 600 Master Gardeners from all over Texas along with about 15 from Arkansas and one from Michigan. The two days the ship was at sea were loaded with educational events and the room was packed for all seminars as well as the opening welcoming
the Texas Extension Director was in attendance at all events and was the welcoming speaker. I had a great time presenting Garden Inspiration from Travel yesterday afternoon. I did a similar topic once many years ago, but I added a lot to it. It brought back a lot of good memories of all our MG adventures and I believe it was well-received.
At meals the we could change seats each meal as long as we sat at a MG table, so we got to visit with a lot of great volunteers from all across Texas as well as our Arkansas folks. I always think you learn as much from networking with other volunteers and agents as you do from the educational sessions.
Our day in Cozumel was on our own. The ship offered a wide range of tours or you could stay on the boat or just explore on your own. Many of ours did the latter and explored close to the ship. Some of us did the ruins and city tour, while others went snorkeling, dune-buggying and more.
Enjoy all the details.....Read More
