The Nut Grower Society board members and staff would like to thank all who participated in the 2018 Summer Tour.  Special thanks to our host NWREC and Wilco/HGO, and the staff members from both facilities contributing to the success of this year's Summer Tour - we are very grateful!

The 2018 Nut Growers Society Summer Tour and Trade Show was help on August 8.  The Summer Tour morning session was held at the North Willamette Research and Education Center (NWREC) with the Trade Show following at the new Wilco/HGO facility in Donald. 

There were four educational break-out sessions at NWREC lead by their staff.  Also presented was the Drone project by Kristine Buckland from the Department of Horticulture at NWREC.  The Trade Show included 70 vendors with lots of conversation with the crowd.  McKillips Catering of St. Paul provided a BBQ lunch that was a great hit.  Facility tours were at Wilco/HGO and Marion Ag (Broadacres).  Parking for the Trade Show was provided at the Marion Ag facility. 

There was a great turnout of NGS members and guests; over 1000 in total!  We thank you all for joining us!
