Farwest Show gears up for facility tours in Oregon

Attendees can see garden centers, sustainable businesses and wholesale nurseries up close before the show begins.


The 2019 Farwest Show, scheduled for August 21–23 in Portland, Oregon, will also offer three tours from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Tuesday, August 20.

Every year, Farwest tours explore the dynamic facilities of Portland’s thought leaders in the green industry. This year’s three tracks will look at retail garden centers, sustainable business processes and procedures, and wholesale nursery operations. The Farwest tours are sponsored by The Peters Company of Wilsonville, Oregon.

Participants may choose the particular tour that best suits their interests. The Farwest Show is the gateway to Nursery Country. The tours give industry professionals a valuable opportunity to engage with the best in the industry, gain valuable knowledge and enhance their careers, all at the same time. The cost is $99 per person for those who register before July 31 and $119 per person for those who register August 1 or later, but space is limited. The tours can only accommodate 50 people each. 

Registered attendees will be transported by luxury motor coach and provided with lunch, beverages and snacks. All tours will depart and return from the north entrance of the Oregon Convention Center (N.E. Holladay Street by the light rail line). Personal vehicles are not allowed.
