In September, we will have two presentations from Brian Kemble, curator of the Ruth Bancroft Garden in Walnut Creek, California. The first presentation, The Evolution of the Ruth Bancroft Garden, will discuss the history of the garden and pictures of the changes over the years, as well as elaborate on Brian’s role as curator. The second presentation will be Gasteria: South Africa’s Big Smile. Including lots of habitat photos and pictures of plants in cultivation, Brian will educate on the genus, which includes 24 recognized species, which has a distribution across South Africa that resembles a big smile.
