Greenhouse Growers Workshop

Water and Fertilizers Dr. Moyhuddin Mirza

with co-presenters Thom Rypien and David Bird, Direct Solutions

Water is essential for plant growth and without water, there would be no greenhouse business. Many greenhouses fail to conduct water testing before start-up only to find that the water is high in sodium and cannot be used for irrigation. Learn about water quality and quantities, and other uses for water in the greenhouse.

Correct fertilization is crucial to success in the greenhouse. Learn about pH, electrical conductivity, designing a fertilizer program based on your water quality, and the use of readymade commercial fertilizers. Research Updates Many researchers in Alberta help the greenhouse and horticulture industry with research and business development. Hear from industry specialists who will share their research achievements and results. 6

Gardening Without Flowers Paul Zammit

While flowers provide a source of colour and seasonal interest, Paul believes that there is often too much emphasis on using them in general landscape planning. Drawing on his 25 years of experience in the industry, he will emphasize how great gardens, large or small, could have year round interest and appeal without relying strictly on flowers. Join Paul for an energetic presentation that explores the importance of garden ornament, hardscaping elements and the power of living sculpture in the landscape from architectural plants with fantastic foliage, form and/or bark. Managing Conflict in the Workplace Fern Richardson

Conflict is a normal and potentially useful aspect of human interaction. It’s an indicator that something is amiss. When dealt with in a positive way, conflict results in increased understanding, improved relationships and enhanced creative thinking. On the other hand, poorly handled conflict can spell disaster. We’ll look at the three stages of conflict and practice some communication tools you can use to put conflict on a positive path.

Insects in the Landscape Dr. Ken Fry

A comprehensive assessment of effective and available biological control agents, coupled with a discussion of cultural, physical and chemical measures, will be presented in the context of native and invasive species threats to urban trees. An emphasis will be placed on preventative measures to promote tree health and ecosystem functioning. 15

Developing High Performance Teams Fern Richardson

Teams are a vital part of today’s work environment and can help bring out the best in employees. It doesn’t happen magically but attention to team building can pay large dividends for everyone. We will look at how teams develop to attain high performance and share two teambuilding exercises you can take back to your workplace. Water Wise Gardening Paul Zammit

Paul believes that every drop of water is a precious resource. Whether it is a year of drought or a year of plenty, careful water use and management in the landscape is of utmost importance. Join Paul as he explores how to make every drop count in the garden, through careful plant selection, and well planned garden practices. Succession Planning Joel Bokenfohr

Transferring a business from one generation to the next is one of the most difficult challenges facing farm families today. Developing a clear plan to transfer the business can prevent the process from becoming overwhelming and complicated in the long run. This session will highlight the key steps to consider and identify potential pitfalls when transferring the business to the next generation. This session will also provide practical strategies on how to transition both the ownership and management of the business to benefit both the exiting and incoming generation. Look for this symbol. It denotes one or more credits available at a particular session for Alberta Environment’s pesticide applicator license renewal.


All conference sessions qualify for educational points for renewing Landscape Industry Certified designations.
