Nestled in the scenic Brandywine River Valley, North Creek Nurseries has been a leader in the propagation and supply of starter plugs for over 28 years.

Additionally, Tim will focus conversation on the natural and biological control agents North Creek employs to keep crops disease and pest free in the greenhouses and safe for pollinators in the landscape.

What are PLNA MeetUps?
PLNA MeetUps are a chance for landscape and nursery industry professionals to educate and network with each other based on real world experiences while building relationships and connecting with fellow industry leaders.
The primary focus of PLNA MeetUps is for the industry professional to socialize and network; some gatherings may include an educational element. CEUs may be awarded for those in attendance if the educational component meets pre-qualifications. Not all events will include formal education or speakers but all are priceless opportunities to build camaraderie, share stories and experiences with each other.
