Delaware Valley University, Doylestown, PA

The 2020 Annual Northern Nut Growers Association Conference will be held this year at the Delaware Valley University (DVU), Doylestown, PA, Sunday to Wednesday, August 9 to 12. The meeting is open to the public. Registration forms will be available at www.nutgrowing.org in late March. PNGA and NNGA members’ registration will be at a reduced rate. Snacks during breaks and lunches are provided with cost of registration.

The organizers of the annual conference have been working diligently to bring together an informative group of speakers. There will be presentations on the role of nuts in permaculture design, chestnuts, hazelnuts, hickory nuts, walnuts (even acorns!), and other talks which cover orchard practices. Keep an eye on the website for detailed information on the schedule of presentations and speakers.

There will also be an auction to benefit the Research Grant Program. Please bring wonderful items–vacation rentals, tours, shows and trips, classes, plants, nuts, fruits, and other growing items, seeds of interesting and rare plants, books, crafty and clever items, and much more to bolster the Research Fund. With your help, we can continue to fund research relevant to nut culture and have an evening of fun! For any questions about the auction content contact: buzzferver@gmail.com.

Save the dates and plan to come and meet fellow nut growers, hear informative talks, and expand your knowledge of what is possible in the wonderful world of nut growing!
