Damon Collingsworth will talk to us about Carnivores

 

Damon has grown carnivorous plants ever since, at the age of 12, he purchased a Cape sunflower fom Peter D'Amato at a local flea market.  

As he grew, so did his collection of these amazing plants.  He ws a constant pesence at California Carnivores when it opened: first as a customer; then volunteer; then employee 

In 2001 he was offered the opportunity to manage the nurseries at Malesiana Tropicals in Borneo, the big island in Indonesia. He spent a year there at Malesiana better learning the cultivation and habitat of the Nepenthes. Upon his return to the states he took a job at a general retail nursery until he was able to return to California Carnivores. He has worked full time as the general manager since 2008 and became an owner in 2009. 

It is his great pleasure to see California Carnivores grow and thrive as it provides only the highest quality carnivorous plants. California Carnivores houses the largest collection of carnivorous plants in the world.

Damon's photography is featured in the award-winning, bestselling revisd edition of "The Savage Garden".  

Plant Table will be provided by Damon Collingsworth 

There will be no Speakerís Dinner this month.
