March is Membership Month at GWA!

Did you know that GWA provides you with a $20 credit towards your annual membership fee for each new person (or company) you bring to GWA?? Bring in five members, and your annual fee is paid.  

To top that off, during the month of March, the GWA member to bring in the most new members will receive the following free books: The Monarch by Kylee Baumle, The Downsized Veggie Garden by Kate Copsey and The 20-30 Something Garden Guide by Dee Nash courtesy of St. Lynn’s Press. 

In case you forgot, here are some of the benefits of joining GWA:

  • No-cost access to intellectual property attorney for reviewing contracts and other services.
  • No-cost attendance to key trade shows and education programs such as Cultivate’17, MANTS, TPIE and ICG.
  • Professional courtesy admissions to dozens of public botanical gardens and arboreta.

  • No-cost attendance at important consumer shows, including the Chicago Flower and Garden Show, Northwest Flower and Garden Show and Philadelphia Flower Show.
  • Participation in regional, national GWA meetings and Connect gatherings for unbeatable networking opportunities.
  • Advance information and trial opportunities for new plants, products and services.
