WNF&GA National Meeting 2018 Save the Dates! June 6 – 10, 2018

The 2018 National Meeting of the WNF&GA, in the magnificent Finger Lakes region of New York State, will be based in the City of Ithaca at the south end of Cayuga Lake. With a length of 38 miles, Cayuga is the longest of the Finger Lakes. Its greatest glacier-created depth is 435 feet.

PLEASE NOTE: If you will travel to and from Ithaca through Canada, you must have a passport, a passport card or an enhanced driver’s license.

Many venues in and around Ithaca are under consideration for our visit: Cornell University & Botanic Gardens, Ithaca College and Natural Lands, Robison NY State Herb Garden, Mundy Wildflower Garden, F.R. Newman Arboretum, Ithaca Farmers Market, Cayuga Nature Center, Cornell Lab of Ornithology, Teaching Dairy Barn and Orchards. We’ll view waterfalls, savor fabulous food and visit farm-based breweries and wineries. Shoppers will enjoy an outdoor pedestrian mall with 100 retail venues.

Comfortable, well-priced accommodations have been set aside in Ithaca’s Country Inn & Suites.

See much more in the WNF&GA fall magazine. Watch for full registration details in the spring 2018 WNF&GA publication.

President’s Message

Dear Members and Friends of WNF&GA,

We have returned from our annual meeting in Nashville with a new slate of officers and a renewed spirit of the strengths and needs of Woman’s National Farm & Garden.  Our time together in Nashville was spent sharing the friendships we developed over the years and making new ones.  If you are a member, but not involved on the national level, now is the time to find out more about us and how you can add your talents to our organization.  If you are not a member, we would be happy to have you.  Contact us and we will tell you more about us and how to become a member.  An organization is only as good as the people who are willing to give their time and energy.  We feel we are blessed with wonderful members.  Join us!

Rita Urbanski

President WNF&GA
