    Tissue culure workshop

    I just copied the notice I got. I am planning to go. Chris


    Kankakee Community College and the Home Tissue Culture Group

    Present a
    Hands-On Workshop for Plant Propagation
    Plant Tissue Culture for the Home and Classroom
    A workshop for hobbyists, teachers, students, Master Gardeners,
    Nurserymen and anyone else who loves or collects plants
    Kankakee, Illinois
    Date/Time September 18, 2010 Saturday - 9am to 4pm
    Place Kankakee Community College
    Guests Dr. Scott Stewart and Frank Tromble
    Have a favorite plant that you would like to mass produce?
    Love to watch plants grow? Are you a collector? A plant scavenger?
    Need something interesting to do for science fair or a school project?
    Want to learn a "biotechnology" technique to teach your students in science class or at
    home school that is inexpensive?
    Plant tissue culture is a method of plant propagation that involves growing plant parts in a
    sterile environment and controlling the production of roots or shoots with growth regulators.
    Using this method, small plant parts can be induced to produce hundreds of small "plantlets"
    which can be further developed and grown to maturity in greenhouses or as houseplants.
    This kitchen culture approach has proven to be useful for science fair projects, teaching plant
    growth concepts, and providing a laboratory experience for homeschoolers. Hobbyists can
    mass produce their favorite plants as well as exotic plants.
    In this workshop you will make your own media, disinfect and culture plant leaves, axillary buds and
    orchid seeds, and discuss trouble shooting and internet resources. You will take home 6 - 10 cultures
    that you create in class plus a handout with basic instructions and FREE samples of PPM, agar and MS
    plant medium. All media and materials for the workshop will be provided. No prior knowledge
    required only an interest in plants!
    Registration is $99. Student rates available. Registration can be paid via credit card or Pay Pal at the
    Home Tissue Culture Group website: http://www.hometissueculture.org/htcgworkshops.htm Checks
    can be sent to KCET/HTCG, 350 Northside Drive, Milton, WI 53563. or contact Dr. Carol Stiff at
    608-302-2750 or carol@kitchencultureEducation.org Local information: sstewart@kcc.edu

    Just a reminder that the meeting will be this Saturday. I may or may not go, it's harvest time after all and that doesn't wait for anyone.
