    Hi All,

    Do you know where the giants of our hobby (Christel Kasselmann; Vin Kutty; Dennis Wong, Cara Wade & Cory McElroy) will all be next spring? They will be gathering in Seattle the first week of May for the Aquatic Gardeners Association 2019 International Convention. Not only will there be inspiring presentations by the subject speakers there will be aquascaping demos, wabi-kusa workshops, and a vendor room with manufacturers and vendor tables. To top it all off is an all day plant auction featuring hundreds of exciting plants many of which we don't often see!

    Have you always wanted to visit an AGA Convention - this is your chance! Space is limited, registration opens in early November, don't be left on the outside looking in! More information will be provided when registration opens - hope to see you there!

    Hi All,

    Registration for the Aquatic Gardeners Association (AGA) International Convention is open, you can sign up here!

    The workshops are booked however you can still observe and learn as well as attend all of the talks. There are still a limited number of tickets left for the Saturday night banquet where Christel Kasselmann will do her second talk.

    According to the AGA folks this is on track to be one of the largest conventions they have ever had....very likely it will be 'sold out' if folks wait until the last minute.

    Hi All,

    It is hard to believe that just over five (5) weeks from now the Aquatic Gardeners Association 2019 International Convention starts - right here in Seattle!!

    If you haven't booked your registration for the convention there are only 35 spots left; and for the Saturday Banquet with Christel Kasselmann's second talk there are only ten (10) open spots. Don't hesitate or you will likely lose out on what should be the best AGA Convention ever! Register here!

    Hi All,

    It is now one month until the AGA Convention in Seattle, so here is an update with news and information for you!

    The convention is now sold out!! There was record interest, and we are now expecting an attendence of around 240 people! If you are unable to attend, please reply and let us know immediately, so we can refund your registration and offer the spot to the many people on our waiting list.

    Please book your flights and hotel rooms! Register for the Red Lion from the sidebar of the convention registration page at https://aga2019.com/register.

    Hi All,

    The dust has settled, the rooms are empty, the last of the vendor pallets have been shipped home, and exhaustion has set in.....how about a short recap.

    It was a great convention! There were approximately 207 registrations plus another 40 registrations for AGA folks, speakers, volunteers - the previous high number was about 150 registrations. There were approximately 20 vendors, both national and 5 local vendors in two vendor rooms. On Sunday, there were 1200 items (mostly plants) sold - the auction took over 7 hours (that's almost 3 items per minute). This was by far the largest, best attended, AGA Convention has ever had.....I hope you didn't miss it.

    However, if you did miss it here are a few pictures I was able to grab as I ran by...
