AAS Summer Summit 2014

AAS Summer Summit 2014

Healthy Plants, Healthy You!

Every year All-America Selections hosts an annual gathering for judges, breeders, brokers, growers, Display Gardens, retailers, media and anyone who would like to attend to learn more about local horticulture, AAS and tour some of our many trial sites.

In 2014, we are traveling to beautiful North Carolina and since there is so much to see there, we're expanding this to a 3 day event, plus the opening reception! Our theme for this year is "Healthy Plants, Healthy You!" as we explore the many ways plant life can impact human health and wellness. 

Prepare for an immersion in both southern hospitality as well as innovation as we embark on our "Summer Road Trip" in a comfortable coach bus for traveling from Charlotte, North Carolina to Asheville, then back to the Charlotte Douglas Airport. This year's event is shaping up to be one of the more interesting and varied Summer Summits that we've held in some time. On one end of the spectrum we'll see high-tech, almost futuristic, research and at the other end of the spectrum, we'll see and experience "back to the earth" locally grown and diverse small farms as our country knew in the early 1900's, all of which are important to the future of the horticulture industry. A bonus experience is the beautiful scenery, delicious food (aka "Foodtopia") and varied breweries (aka "Brewtopia") in and around Asheville.
