Next Meeting: Thursday 14th January  7:30pm

"Orchids of Mexico" by Weyman Bussey

Weyman eats, sleeps, and breathes ORCHIDS! Starting at the age of 12 and continuing to date, orchids have been his hobby, profession and passion. From the time he graduated from college in 1976, he has been located in the American tropics, where he claims he can at least be close to the orchids in the wild, and he doesnít have to worry about them freezing. He earned his B.S. degree in Ornamental Horticulture and Botany at the University of Florida.

He frequently mentions people he has learned a lot from, such as Milton Carpenter, Tom Sheehan, Jean Merkel, Joe Rudvalis, Ben Berliner, Fred Thornton, to name a few. He has traveled extensively around the world. He gives a very good presentation, not overly technical, but down to earth and loaded with common sense (of course you know, common sense is the least common of the senses!) 

Plant table will be provided by Weyman Bussey.

Speakerís Dinner will be at 5:30 at Sichuan Fortune House, 41 Woodsworth Ln. Pleasant Hill. Everyone is welcome to attend and meet our speaker. If you plan to attend, please notify Liz Charlton at (925) 280-1671 or email dvosnews@gmail.com so we can include you in the reservation.
