North Carolina has more than 300 miles of Atlantic coastline, the highest mountain peaks east of the Rockies and every climatology in-between. This permits growers across the state to produce a diverse pallet of quality plants that will thrive across a wide spectrum of planting zones. Hence the Green & Growin’ Marketplacehas become known as the place where plant buyers buy plants.
North Carolina boasts three of the 10 largest U.S. cities, by population, in the South Atlantic region: Greensboro, where Green & Growin’ is held, ranks 10th on that list and is less than two hours from both Charlotte (2nd) and Raleigh (7th). From 2000-2012, Raleigh was the fastest growing city in the U.S. with an astounding 47.8% population growth rate. Charlotte ranked 5th with 32.8% population growth.
North Carolina’s green industry enjoys a unique culture of cooperation and camaraderie among its family-owned farms and small businesses. Come January in Greensboro, you’ll find the qualities that make Green & Growin’ and our industry so special on full display — from the moment you walk in the door until the time we say “see y’all again next year.”
With more than 180 hours of education at Green & Growin’, the GET GREAT Package Price for NCNLA members means that they pay only 69 cents for each hour of education offered at the show.
