President's Message January 2021


We are still going to the South Florida Fair. Look for Mark Porter's Sign Up Genius. Volunteers are needed to set up, take down, and man the booth.


The Mounts Plant Sale is scheduled for February. We had a great time at the event in November.  Hope to see you there.


The  Tree Sale is set for  March at the Fairgrounds as well. Jane Lee is spearheading this enormous task. Please give her your support to make the tree sale a success.


Our speaker for the December meeting is Otto Lambert. He has a degree in Horticulture from the University of the Phillipines. His work experience includes working in a lab for Vaughan Seed company and Weyerhauser Tissue Culture Center.
