Carol Reese is an Extension Horticulture Specialist, a nationally-known speaker, blending equal parts gardening knowledge, natural lore, and quirky humor. After finishing her B.S. and M.S. in Horticulture at Mississippi State University, she taught classes in plant materials and landscape design.

She attributes her love of horticulture to being raised on a farm by generations of plant nuts, including a grandfather who dynamited his garden spot each spring to break up the hard soil. Carol's very personal appreciation of natural lore is at least partially a result of her near daily walks through the wild areas near her home with her motley collection of mutts.

Join us for a lecture featuring light refreshments.

This is a free event in partnership with the Georgia Perennial Plant Association. Reservations are recommended.
