Growing Better

The TPF Annual Meeting and Field Day
April 28-29, 2022

If you grow it, mow it, install it, or provide services to those who do, Growing Better is the place to be!  This day and a half event brings together farmers, turf managers, exhibitors, and researchers from throughout the state for an unbeatable combination of networking and business opportunities.

Host Hotel Update, April 22:  Our Embassy Suites room block is sold out – thank you!  There are other hotels along Palm River Road and in the immediate vicinity, such as the Home2 Suites by Hilton.  All are very close to TopGolf, where all of our Thursday activities will be held.
