Annual Meeting 6:30 pm

Lecture 7:00 pm, by Kelly Dodson and Sue Milliken of Far Reaches Farm

“Ferns and the Other Plants of Western China”
Embracing Pteridophilia or the love of ferns rather recently after being hung up on angiosperms for decades, Sue Milliken and Kelly Dodson of Far Reaches Farm will present an admittedly less than erudite but entertaining program on the various ferns that have captured their eye during several plant hunting trips to the mountains of western China. Sprinkled among the ferns will be some of their favorite angiosperms or seed-bearing flowering plants of which many are quite rare in cultivation. They anticipate a fun evening of interactive participation as genus and species are shouted out from the various fern experts in attendance. Kelly and Sue will also have plants for sale on Friday only.

Saturday, June 8th
Plant Sale from 9:00 am – 2:00 pm
This sale offers hundreds of species of ferns as well as a large assortment of other unique, shade loving plants!
