Program for September 16, 2015

45 Years of Bromeliads

This year marks the observance of our 45th year as one of the Shepard Garden and Arts Center gardening clubs. One of our members, Lee Kavaljian, was present at the founding of this society in 1970.

Lee has a doctorate in botany. Yet, he's made a name in ceramic arts. Likewise, Lee's involvement in bromeliads could be regarded as a bit of a puzzle. He prefers gesneriads, amaryllidoideae and palms to bromeliads. Yet, he's served as an editor of the Bromeliad Internalional Journal along with Hal Wiedeman for several years.

45 years later Lee finds himself conservator to a greenhouse and atrium bursting with bromeliads. Lee will give a retrospective of our society, and reveal how he came to love the brom.
