Speaker will be Joe Truskot, ARS Master Rosarian, and president of the Monterey Bay Rose Society. Joe has been growing roses in his garden in Salinas since 1993 with experience cultivating more than 300 different varieties and cultivars including hybrid teas, floribundas, miniatures, old garden and species roses, and several forms of climbing roses. He was Consulting Rosarian of the year for NCNH in 2016 and is a frequent lecturer at rose societies and garden clubs. As the host of “In the Garden” on KSQD Santa Cruz, a weekly garden show, he covers just about everything to do with plants.
