Annual Taking Root Luncheon

If you were able to join us at our sixth annual Taking Root luncheon, you were privy to an entertaining and enlightening talk by raconteur and plantsman extraordinaire, Tony Avent.

Tony’s enthusiasm for plants and plant collecting shone through his recollection of plant expeditions all over the world, including ones in Mexico with John Fairey in the early days.

Tony brilliantly “connected the dots,” illustrating The John Fairey Garden’s importance as a refuge for ex-situ plant conservation of endangered and rare species. Thank you to all who contributed to the success of Taking Root.
