The Rose Gardens of Farmers Branch
The City of Farmers Branch invested five years as a research partner in what may well be the largest environmental horticultural project in the United States. 2-1/2 acres planted with roses of all classes and color have taught us lessons that can be applied to individual gardens, regardless of the type of gardening enjoyed.
Pam Smith, Park Landscape Manager for the City of Farmers Branch, will tell us about "Lessons from the Garden." She has worked in the green industry for more than 35 years, including 17 years as the curator for the National EarthKind Trial Rose Garden. Pam has a B.S. in Floriculture from Texas A&M, an M.S. in Horticulture from Texas Tech, and considers herself very fortunate to make a living doing what is her passion.
