Cabin Fever Conversations

April 3, 2020 - June 12, 2020

Zoom Webinar

Contact: Abigail Harper,, 857-600-6921

As we all practice social distancing and simultaneously get excited for spring, now is the time to readjust our sails and embrace virtual learning. “Cabin Fever Conversations” is focused on lighthearted, but educational conversations about gardening. There will be one featured guest per session who has some exciting specialty like seeds, houseplants, pollinator health, etc. Bring some questions of your own because there will be time for them at the end. We will be using Zoom for these conversations. More details about how to use Zoom and join the session are below. Each session will be under one hour. Take a break from your cabin fever and join!


We anticipate maxing out our Zoom webinar capacity. If you have difficulty logging on due to webinar capacity limits, we will also be live streaming these videos on the Gardening in Michigan Facebook group, which you can access at
