    Friday evening will include registration and a garden tour from 4:00pm to 6:00pm at Judy Eckhoff’s garden, 7911 S Yoder Rd. in Haven, KS. Her garden is located 6 miles south of Hwy 50 and Yoder Rd or 1 1⁄2 miles north of Hwy 96 and Yoder Rd. Following the tour we will meet at Journey Mennonite Church (1/2 mile South of Judy’s ) for refreshments, a seedling show, slides and the Region 18 Board Meeting.

    Saturday morning’s activities will be at Carol Moore’s garden, 807 Hoagland, Hutchinson, KS where the master planting is located. Registration will begin at 8:00am. In-garden Judges Training with Hooker Nichols will be from 8:30am to 10:30am.

    We sincerely hope this one-day format will fit into your schedule. For those coming in on Friday other club members will have their gardens open to visitors.
