February Meeting: “Succulents around the World”

Our February meeting will feature a presentation by Panayoti Kelaidis from the Denver Botanic Gardens on “Succulents around the World.” He writes, “Everyone has their 15 minutes of fame, as Andy Warhol assured us. With plants it’s a little different: Succulents have had a decade of increasing popularity, with no end in sight. I have had the privilege to travel quite a bit in my work, and over the last few years I’ve been astonished to find Succulents thriving and being displayed proudly and ubiquitously in New Zealand, China, Tibet even in Greece! I’ll share some of these unlikely cameos of our favorite plants, with an update about cactus and succulent doings in Denver!”

The meeting will be held Thursday February 13, 2020 6:30 – 8:30 pm at the Unitarian Universalist Church, 536 Ouray Ave., Grand Junction.

Guests are welcome.
