Our Seminar Schedule is sorted by date, then by room and time. Want to find specific topics? Use our Seminars by Category pages to find the seminars just right for you.
We post Speakers' handouts every evening by 9 pm after the show closes for the day. If you would like to access the 2020 SPEAKER HANDOUTS, just click on the pink paper icon on the seminar schedule to download and print their handout. We keep the schedule up for months after the show, so you can access all the handouts as you get back out into the garden.
If you do not see paper symbol, it means that the Speaker didn’t provide a handout for that seminar.
