John and Kelly Schroeder of Valleybrook Gardens in British Columbia, Canada, have organized a horticultural tour of Israel in October 2016. According to John, Israel is a world leader in irrigation technology, and an exporter of a range of horticultural products.
John and Kelly organize horticultural tours such as this one every year or two.
“We really enjoy traveling with an industry group, making contacts with industry folks around the world, and generally having a great time, mostly behaving ourselves,” says John.
The group will visit greenhouses, garden centers, and nurseries; however, John says there will be plenty of time to enjoy the incredible culture, history, and sights of the fascinating country.
Tour dates are October 24-November 7, with an optional two-day extension to visit Petra in Jordan.
