Gathering of the Green 2014


Gathering of the Green 2014

March 19-22, 2014, found me at the Gathering of the Green in Davenport, Iowa. This is a premier event for folks who love “green” tractors. Whether or not you’re a two-cylinder fan, love the New Generation tractors, enjoy John Deere implements, are devoted to toys or just admire everything Deere, you will enjoy the Gathering of the Green!

There were over 75 vendors from all over the United States, over 60 technical and historical workshops and presentations, plus amazing displays, auctions, and an evening banquet with keynote speaker, Ken Buell. There were also trips and tours available and vendors lined up to offer products and services.

The many displays found throughout the RiverCenter followed the theme for the 2014 Gathering, "Preserving America’s Heritage." These displays set up by the host club’s volunteers, were really fabulous and included a tour through a machine shed, a timeline of John Deere equipment and even a real John Deere silo right there in the middle of the RiverCenter Atrium! I don’t know how they did that!
