The June meeting is a special year end celebration that occurs at the JC Raulston Arboretum in the Ruby McSwain Education Building. The potluck luncheon starts at 11:00 and the program includes new officer installation and the announcement of club member awards. Guests do not need to bring a covered dish. We usually adjourn around 1:00 p.m.
Colorful and creative succulents are taking the world by storm. Brie will share growing and propagation advice about her favorite tender and hardy succulents. She will discuss creative combinations for year-round interest and new introductions for cold hardy zones. Low maintenance, drought tolerant and eye catching, Sizzling Succulents will encourage everyone to indulge in this sustainable trend!
Originally from southeastern Michigan, Brie Arthur studied Landscape Design and Horticulture at Purdue University. With more than a decade of experience as a grower and propagator at leading nurseries such as Plant Delights and Camellia Forest, she now combines her passion for plants and sustainable land management by communicating the value of gardening across the U.S. Brie has been dubbed a revolutionary for her leadership in the suburban Foodscape movement and for her work with public schools across the U.S. She appears as a correspondent on the PBS Television show “Growing A Greener World” and her debut book, “The Foodscape Revolution,” has become a best seller on Amazon. In 2017 Brie was honored as the first recipient of The American Horticultural Society's Emerging Horticultural Professional Award.
Brie will have plants available for purchase.
