Apologies for the delayed update on the grow-in and essentially the completion of phase 1 of the GTI. There have been many new projects and initiatives created this year and keeping up with them has been a challenge. Having said that, I am confident that the Guelph Turfgrass Institute is firing on all cylinders and is engaging with the public and turfgrass industry more now than it has in a long time. All good things - so stay tuned for a blog post highlighting all the programs and outreach initiatives we have been involved with this season.
Last Monday (August 27th) marked the first day of the grow-in at the new site of the GTI. It goes without saying that this was a very exciting milestone for this project, the GTI team, our current donors and the various industry stakeholders and partners that make up our unique institution. The new location will introduce state of the art infrastructure and research plots to help usher in a new era of turfgrass research, service, education, and innovation in Ontario.
