Dates Announced for
2016 All-America Selections Summer Summit
in Madison, Wisconsin
“Land of Locally Grown” 

February 25, 2016 –

All-America Selections and National Garden Bureau are teaming up for the 2016 AAS Summer Summit, this time taking attendees to beautiful Madison, Wisconsin.

The state of Wisconsin is ranked 6th out of 51 states and provinces as most committed to the locavore movement. ranked Wisconsin 8th in states where it’s easy to eat locally based on the number of farmers markets, CSAs and food hubs.

As AAS and NGB support this locally grown movement, we will tour not only AAS Trials and Display Gardens but also local businesses as we see and hear from the leaders of Wisconsin’s locally grown movement.

Our host hotel, the Holiday Inn and Suites, is a comfortable and quiet spot on the west side of Madison. Bring the family and stay the weekend as Wisconsin is beautiful in August and our hotel includes the Crawdaddy Cove Waterpark.

Mark you calendars for August 24-26, 2016 and see you in August!  
(Registration will open in May)
