The Upcoming Speakers for the next few months are as follows:

October 11 - Mr. Ginuta topic: Holistic Living  

Mr. Ralph Ginuta is the founder of the Florida School of Holistic Living and Mr. Ginuta will present on 10 wild plants, both introduced and native, commonly found in the landscape. Although disliked (or even hated!) in the garden, these plants hold powerful stories and medicinal aspects. 

Short Bio:

Mr. Ralph Ginuta has been learning from the plants since 2009, first entering into the world of botanical mystery through work in the kitchen, alchemizing plants to create nourishing meals. Eventually, he found the Florida School of Holistic Living, where he studied herbalism and simultaneously created his first food forest project, at the Bumby House in Orlando, Florida. Upon a series of deep calls, he found himself on a trip to Peru, which ended up becoming his home for 2 years, learning deeply about the plant traditions of Iquitos and the Andes. He returned back to Florida in 2015 to continue working with the plants and the people of the humid sub-tropics where he currently resides, nestled somewhere between his Nikon F3 and his Taylor guitar. 

November 8 - Mr. Glenford Smith: "Practical Tips on Successful Fall Grafting!"

December - Holiday Ice Cream Social!

We hope to see and connect with you soon!

My Best,
