Note: The Maryland Chapter includes members from Maryland, Delaware and Washington D.C.
Our Spring Meeting will be held on March 23, 2019, @ 10:30 AM at the IWLA, 18301 Waring Station Road, Germantown MD 20874. Our featured speaker will be our own Bruce Levine. The title of his presentation is: What are we breeding for: how plant defenses work. Also there will be updates on: small stem assays, the 4,000 seeds planted at the Baltimore Agriculture Center, and the recent and near future work of our chapter. All are welcome!
On February 9th we had a very successfully planting of 4000 5th generation chestnuts in the Baltimore County Agricultural Center greenhouse. After selection these trees will be planted in our seed orchards late in September. Here is a link to the Baltimore Sunpaper article.
