Dear Sir: Please e-mail me a conference brochure and a news release on the conference so I can publish it in the Douglas/Sarpy County (NE) Master Gardener "Roots & Shoots." There is a lot of interest in your conference in our neck of the woods in Eastern Nebraska. Thanks: Jim Keepers, Maturing Master Gardener
