Event description


Let's gather to Create a community, Learn how to make business more profitable, Inspire one another

There is nothing more important to the life of an entrepreneur than community, which can be difficult to find if we spend the majority of our days planting away. Conferences and workshops are the best ways to network, learn and be inspired. Digging In was specifically designed for professional container designers, the first of it's kind dedicated to all things related to container gardening!

Don't miss out on this community gathering of like-minded professionals. Digging In 2017 was a huge success and as they say "Everything's Bigger in Texas" Digging In 2018 will be even bigger and better....we have so much greatness and fun in store for y'all! Registration is limited, don't wait, the last event sold out quickly!
