Thank you to everyone who attended Chesapeake Green 2018! Please mark your calendars for Chessie 2019 to be held on February 20th and 21st once again at the Maritime! See you all next year! 

Chessie Green, as it is known within the industry, is a two-day event packed full of engaging and informative horticulture education.  The symposium will be held on February 20 and 21, 2018 back at the Maritime Institute. We are proud to be celebrating Chessie Green’s 15th year! We are confident that many of you are happy with the move back to the Maritime if for nothing else, the OUTSTANDING lunch! Come for the great education and enjoy the networking, vendor showcase, and silent auction (to benefit scholarship).
