Exceptional Plants in Habitat Near and Exotic
by Jeremy Spath
 
Jeremy began his plant career at the San Diego Botanic Garden. While at the gardens, he was exposed to many different plant groups but was most attracted to succulents, cycads, bromeliads, palms and bamboos which, amusingly, one docent at the gardens once referred to as man plants. During this tenure, Jeremy felt an urge to travel into the field to study the plants he loved to grow and has been hooked since the first trip. After five years of overseeing the collections at SDBG, he left the gardens to launch his landscape company, Water's Path.
 
Additionally, Jeremy works for Rancho Soledad Nursery in Rancho Santa Fe, California, overseeing seed propagation and succulent hybridization. Jeremy spends most of his days working with plants, but is happiest in the field, since to him, nature is truly the best landscaper.  Jeremy will be bringing plants to sell at the meeting.
Plant of the Month Presentation
 
San Diego Zoo Safari Park
by Leslie Sheridan
 
The San Diego Zoo is usually known for its amazing collection of animals, however unbeknownst to many, there is an equally if not more varied collection of plants from around the world. Leslie will talk about several of the botanical gardens she discovered within the park including Palms and Cycads, an edible garden, and native California and Hawaiian gardens. She will present beautiful photographs taken during her recent visit to the Zoo.
